This website is a life-sciences research wiki hosted on Google Sites and managed by Principal Investigator Christopher Hogue at the National University of Singapore's Department of Biological Sciences on behalf of the Mechanobiology Institute of Singapore
Mechanobiology is the study of cellular and molecular systems that either respond to or generate forces.
One of the major efforts of the Mechanobiology Institute is MBInfo, a Wiki inspired online text resource.
Brief History: Between 1997-2007 the Hogue Laboratory (Blueprint.org) was located at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto where we developed BIND and other bioinformatics resources. Dr. Hogue was affiliated with the University of Toronto as a non-tenure track Associate Professor. Facing funding and staffing cutbacks in 2005, the intellectual property amassed by the group was sold by Mount Sinai Hospital & founders to Thomson-Reuters Scientific in March of 2007.
In 2007-2013 Dr. Hogue moved to Singapore as a contract faculty member in Southeast Asia's Premiere Research University - the National Unviversity of Singapore.
In June 2013 Dr. Hogue relocates. Stay tuned.
