Return to Melbourne Homepage


ETHZ 2007

  • Good
    • ETH Zurich drop down bar on each page
      • i like this very much, especially how it scrolls automatically to the corresponding section on the page -Sh
      • we could also have "Go to Top of page" links on long pages
    • ETHZ banner on each page leads to homepage
    • Vistor count at the bottom of the page
    • Nice meet the team page
  • Not so good
    • First page too dense
    • Agreed, provide a little information and then link to a more heavy page - St

Harvard 2007

  • Intro good - What the project was, What they had achieved, What it could achieve in the future (applications) -Sh
  • No navigation/signposting though -St
  • Does link to detailed wiki, but all the way down the bottom - St

UC Berkeley 2007

  • Very good explanation of project and reasons for it right up the top - St
  • Nice brief description of the different components (with links to pages with details including results) -Sh
    • Do we want to introduce the components on the front page?
  • icons again!!
  • colour scheme? - blueish maybe.. blood is red that is fair enough
  • i like the animated gif ... moving stuff is appealing to the eye... easy to do ...
    • Animation of the "Clock" in action for our front page? (Like in the presentation?) - St

Chiba 2006

  • nice sort of layout on the front page

Cambridge 2006

  • icon layout ... easy information to grasp .. i like| needs better icons though
  • Again, too dense to read all at once. - St

Imperial 2006

Imperial 2007 really good tabs on the top of the page

  • separate wet lab/dry lab sections -Sh


  • nice and simple front page ... i like this simplicity, but with icons :)
    • Seconded. This is about what we want for a front page (except prettier). - St


  • columned layout
  • animation of the project ... grab these of the presentations...
    • Animations good for explaining a lot of information in an easy to understand manner. - St
  • visitor numbers and locations ... down the bottom
  • very simple banner ... they then put out flyers and stuff... i think it'd hilarious if we marketed this as a swiss clock/watch alternative and gave out a brochure ... :p
  • Looks like a business website on the general appearance, but animation of explaination is good. - Di


Brown 2007

  • Border around front page?
  • Public page - www.brownigem.com -
    • They had a video that got onto the OWW and synbio front page last year - do we want to do this ?

Harvard 2007

  • Good layout
  • Links to tools (plasmid mappers, blast2seq etc...) frequently used stuff
  • Detailed protocols of experiments to date--good -Sh
    • but probably better to link it to a separate page of protocols like Peking’s (to avoid redundancy)
  • a just for fun section ... we need to have more fun as a team... i say fridays at AO - (Animal Orchestra) or the pub

Imperial 2007

Brown 2006

  • concise front page ... emphasises the right things ... (big font = important links - todo list, meetings, biobricks, overview etc)

Alberta 2007

Harvard 2006


  • team photo somewhere on both
  • photo(s) of Bio21 ... taken by us not generic
  • border design?
  • presentation section ... devoted purely to stuff to do with the presentation (berkeley 06)
  • calagary 06 nicely design banners/logo? (ie. not done in paint) - we all have friends that could whip something together thats fairly spiffy ;)
  • indiviuals photos in the team profiles ... standardise the profiles
  • poster design mini-team and section on the wiki...
  • archive section
  • Final
    • Front page small and succinct with lots of pictures
    • Animation very good idea
    • Medium level of detail on Final wiki, links to appropriate page of pre wiki for further detail
