As Google has introduced its new APIv2 and is going to break backwards compatibility to version 1 soon, we are working hard to port SynBioWave to the new API. We have rewritten most of the code of the SynBioWave-Robot, and we were able to implement several major improvements using new possibilities of the APIv2.

Menu-events now trigger callback-functions, which further simplifies robot-programming and results in much cleaner code. As the state of a gadget can now be updated without reloading the gadget completely every time, we are using this feature to provide a smoother menu. We use the new “Active API” to improve upload integration.
Apr. 20 2010
we are currently writing a detailed guide for SynBioWave-Robot programming and will post it on the project site.
May. 10 2010
Developer guide is available, so programming additional robots using the SynBioWave Robot would be easier.
Jun. 06 2010
The new Attachmend-API greatly simplifies the up- and download of sequences. Sequences attached to a wave (at least those in common formats) using wave’s generic file attachment functionality are automatically imported.

Paul, Jörg, kristian
We have new members in Team now. Fabian Haas, Paresh Paradkar and Niklas Meinzer joined Freiburg_Software Team. We gave an introduction to them about iGEM and SynBioWave.
Jul. 05 2010
Started developing primary versions of the robots.
Jul. 16 2010
Paresh Paradkar and Niklas Meinzer have now got their accounts for WIKI.
Aug. 03 2010
We discussed about the US visa form and concerned formalities.
Sep. 16 2010
Set up the BLAST Robot (Robot Registration) and started research on BLAST APIs
Sep. 17 2010
Discussed the first version of Translation Robot with team and received inputs for further improvements.
Sep. 18 2010
Set up the Alignment Robot and implemented a first Alignment Algorithm
Sep. 19 2010
Improved Code Reusability by redesigning the Alignment Robot
Sep. 20 2010
Paresh, Fabian, Niklas
Went to Frankfurt for Visa application, created Project abstract and agreed on a title
Sep. 21 2010
created Wiki outline, checked gold mouse pad requirements
Sep. 22 2010
Continued Work on Needleman/Wunsch Alignment, now custom cost functions are available
Sep. 25 2010
Added Smith/Waterman Algorithm to Alignment Robot
Sep. 30 2010
Implemented the first Version of the PrimerDesigner (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Oct. 1 2010
Improved the Translation Robot. The output shows now the Frame no. in a clearer way. * Also, Paresh made the output more comfortable for users by adding length, start and end positions of ORFs. * We discused the basic functionality of REBase-Robot (Restcritionenzym).
Oct. 3 2010
Continued Work on Primer Designer.
Now calculation the melting points according to Oligocalc as recommended by Volker. I furthermore resolved the issues I had with the Display Gadget and the Sequences are displayed in right order.
TODO: Make sure the melting points of both primers are about the same, implement RFCs and make designed Primers available for downloading.
Oct. 4 2010
Started working on restrictionsites robot.
Oct. 5 2010
- describe the Sequence with their names
- a input matrix for the position where the primer should start
- implement binary search for primer position
- show Start - End - position
- Import via BioJava
Oct. 6 2010
Started writing the User Guide for the Add-on Robots
Changed translation robot to color the ORF in the output. Received inputs regarding the restriction sites from team.
Oct. 7 2010
Improved the synbiowave base classes SequenceUtils and Sequence and adjusted the Addon Robots to them. Also fixed a bug in the alignment robot.
Oct. 8 2010
Experimented with Gadgets to make our Robots more interactive. Created a simple Button Gadget and included it in Primerdesigner: Now the user can store the Primers in the workspace by clicking a button.
Oct. 8 2010
Improved the Primerdesigner Gadget: User can now enter a custom name for the primers before they get stored in Workspace.
Made some icons for the robots.
Oct. 9 2010
Improved the translation robot to show all frames one under the other using new methods in SequenceUtils class.
Created a Robot that can download any part from parts registry and add it to the workspace.
Oct. 11 2010
Improved the translation robot to output frames faster. Wrote own translation method for converting DNA to amino acids
Did some research on the low performace and tweaked the Display functions resulting in a huge performance gain.
Oct. 12 2010
Updated the Main Robot and included all library files edited in the past weeks into the synbiowave library; released synbiowave-V2-001.jar as the new developer library. Also the Main Robot now uses the new XML parser to import parts from part registry.
Designed logos and icons.
Oct. 13 2010
Fixed a bug in Abstract Robot: The robot now checks if the gadget is the MainMenu before he tries to evaluate it, which enables us to use other interactive Gadgets. (New abstract robot can be found in synbiowave-V2-002.jar on svn)
Reviewed the Primerdesigner: No RFC Prefixes are available, but start and stop point. Also the Primers are now no longer wrong way.
Wrote pages for the wiki and made some Homepage designs.
Changed the translation robot to find multiple ORFs per frame.
Oct. 14 2010
Made the following fileformats available in the Download section: FASTA, Genbank, EMBL
Wrote pages for the wiki.
Started working on likelihood robot.
Oct. 15 2010
Imported BioBricks can now be stored into workspace via ButtonClick.Continued Work on BLAST Robot: Finally found a good solution, now using NCBI Blast URL API.
Oct. 16 2010
Created a "waiter" Gadget, that waits for the BLAST results to avoid robot timeouts.
Uploaded the homepage layout to the official wiki.
Oct. 17 2010
Continued working on the BLAST robot: Wrote an XML-Parser for the ncbi blast results. They are now beeing displayed in the wave
Bought a new laptop especially for iGEM ;)
Oct. 19 2010
Homepage: Made some new designs.
