What is MBInfo?
MBInfo is a unique, multipurpose information resource, created at the Mechanobiology Institute, Singapore. MBInfo provides in-depth reviews on the mechanics of cellular and molecular function. Through its wiki-based design, reviews are updated regularly to keep pace with progress within the field. Each review is written by scientists and subsequently peer reviewed by experts in the field to ensure the content is accurate, reliable and up to date. Each review emphasizes the functional and mechanical aspects of a process, rather than the genetic aspects, with the aim of making this resource accessible to a wider audience.
MBInfo is an ideal resource for scientists working in alternative fields, individuals working in industries where products are based on biological principles or students seeking a reliable introduction to a given cellular process.
Each topic is written in a pyramid structure. The top of the pyramid is represented by an overview page, providing a basic description of a given function or process. These pages target a broad spectrum of readers and assume only a basic understanding of biology. Further down the pyramid, the reader will encounter the steps involved in the process described and functional modules that address specific mechanical aspects. These pages outline the protein complexes involved and the mechanisms by which they achieve the given process or function. These pages assume the readers have a more in-depth knowledge of scientific terms and principles.
For every topic, a series of graphics and/or animations are available. These supplement the reviews, clarify information and guide the reader through complex processes pictorially. This makes MBInfo an ideal teaching resource, whether in the classroom or for clients trying to understand your product. All images and text are copyright protected and are for personal use only.
