(In partnership with Benchling)

Industry Education Programme

Bioinformatics applies digital technologies to collect, store, analyze and disseminate biological data and information. These may include DNA, amino acid sequences or annotations about those sequences. Scientists and clinicians use databases that organize and index such biological information to increase our understanding of health and disease and, in certain cases, as part of medical care. 

Benchling makes collaborative research and development possible in the biotechnology industry through cloud-based tools in biotech research for digital DNA sequence editing, designing and running experiments, analyzing data, and sharing research

Benchling offers solutions in the following areas:
 
Electronic lab notebook

Benchling software includes an electronic lab notebook that allows researchers to document their experiments. Benchling claims their notebook software reduces data entry time by up to 85%. 

Molecular biology suite

The molecular biology suite is an integrated, all-in-one, interface offering CRISPR guides, automation of primer designs, plasmid visualization, sequence alignment, and other relevant biological and chemical software tools.

Bioregistry

The bioregistry is a fully integrated platform for creating, organizing, and documenting workflow for biologists, particularly for sequence editing and strain engineering. Benchling designed the bioregistry to track and assign features to organisms, import data from standardized databases, and give biologists the power to take notes within the bioregistry itself.

Sample tracking
Benchling offers an inventory tracking system with their software. The system allows for the tracking of individual samples, containers, and instruments within the lab.

Workflow management
Benchling offers a workflow management systems that helps to design and manage work, provide feedback on progress, identify workflow bottlenecks, and improve decision making.

 

The industries include; Biotech/Life Sciences, Agribusiness, Pharmaceuticals, Development & Sustainability, Higher Education, and Human Resources & Staffing. Its users include Scientists, Researchers, Doctors, Human Resources Managers, Project Managers and Inventory Managers.

Today’s global crises require advanced scientific solutions, so preparing students for STEM careers has never been more critical. Benchling offers a free virtual solution – which only requires an email address and a computer with an internet connection – for teachers and their students.

Benchling provides a safe, engaging platform for students to explore and learn. For example, students can emulate how scientists operate using an electronic lab notebook and designing biological experiments with Benchling. Best of all, teachers can feel confident that their students learn practical skills that apply to careers in science, medicine, and more.

Benchling offers a free virtual solution that only requires an email address and a computer with an internet connection for students. Students can emulate how scientists operate using an electronic lab notebook and designing biological experiments with Benchling. For students, They’ve developed self-serve lessons that allow them to practise designing experiments about PCR, cloning, and even CRISPR with Benchling. And they offered their product completely free to academics.
