Great Video Presentation of Genetics Sequence

Carina Dennis presented a digital poster at the International Human Genome Organisation meeting held in Sydney in March this year using a great sequence on genetics. She has made an excellent 3 minute video of the sequence - see
The sequence is available at

The video is a great short example of what is possible in LAMS - very useful for sharing with colleagues!

LAMS 2.4 update

We've had a very busy period on the technical side with the recent release of LAMS 2.4 and work for LAMS International clients. We're still working on the installer/upgraders for LAMS 2.4 - we hope to have these out in the not too distant future - please keep an eye on the LAMS Community technical forums for updates.
