I'm looking for Vintage / unconventional pictures for Bioinformatics.

Feel free to add an URL to the picture below. If you're the owner of the picture, tell me if I you allow me to upload the picture on wikipedia commons.

Please, don't upvote my answers.

PS: e.g: do you have a picture of a printed version of the GCG manual somewhere?

No one has a punch-card of an early bioinfo program?

Report on the Use of Computers in Biology and Medicine. 1960. Robert Ledley had trained as a dentist, but moved to computers as they were coming along. Margaret Dayhoff worked with him, and they were the 2 authors on the COMPROTEIN paper in 1962.

http://books.google.com/books?id=J5grAAAAYAAJ&pg=PP1&output=html You can download a PDF.

Edit to note: I don't know what the legal status of report covers is.

Here’s the GCG manual (it cost $4,000 for an academic license in 1995). It's ok with me for you to upload this to wikimedia commons.

uploaded on WP: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:GCGPackageManual.jpg . I'm not sure wether there is a license issue here...

I would say this falls into the unconventional file. But it cracks me up, and if someone used it in a presentation I think it would be fun.

Hilarious! :) Who would have thought that someone' would challenge the renowned six-way Venn diagram!

Any idea where we can get one?

Well, that's what that whole thread on twitter was about--who launched the organism Venn craze. And the rat genome team thinks it was them. This was their evidence. Apparently this really is a vintage item, I don't think it's available anywhere.

Ah, I see! It should not be too hard to reproduce the figure, I'll give a try. :)

And this is the National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF) Atlas of Protein and Genomic Sequences (June 30, 1994). It was designed to access data from PIR. Also ok to upload this to Wikimedia commons.

Maybe an off-topic, but here is a vintage Hi-C image from "Spatial organization of the Drosophila nucleus: a three-dimensional cytogenetic study" J Cell Sci Suppl 1984:))

< image not found >

Compare to this one from Cell 2012 ("Three-dimensional folding and functional organization principles of the Drosophila genome")

I just came across this paper, and the images were new to me. I love the one of accessing GenBank in 1983. But there is also one of amino acid beads and computer code from 1962.

I love this photo (& this article). I've been planning to use it in an unpublished blog post and have done a little digging into it in the past. By my reckoning, Goad is looking at the human preproenkephalin locus, GenBank J00122, based on the primary sequence and length of the accession.

I laughed.

Lizards playing poker. Has kind of a vintage vibe and a bioinformatics vibe.
