Microsoft Biology Foundation

Microsoft Biology Foundation? I know, I did a double take too. Turns out it’s a “language-neutral bioinformatics toolkit for genomics research”. Who knew?

The The MBF project is coordinated by a Technology Advisory Board, consisting of members from the academic community, industry and Microsoft and source code is up on Codeplex. Most of this is over my head but one thing I do know is it’s another great example of Azure in action alongside the Biology Extension for Excel.
