To (hopefully) make the life of molecular biologists everywhere a little easier, I have put together a Molecular Biologist’s tool-bar for Firefox/IE, which you can download here.
It’s main feature is the multi-search box from which you can search Google, Pubmed, Scirus, Wikipedia, SwissProt and others directly, saving you from navigating to the individual sites every time you want to make a search.
It also contains drop-down menus with links to commonly used sequence manipulation and analysis tools, bio-databases, literature tools and some other stuff I hope you will find useful.
This is the only the first version of the toolbar and I intend to add more features over time so I’d love to hear your input into which tools and features you would like to see added (or removed!). Please leave your suggestions either in a comment, by e-mail or by hitting the “suggest” button on the toolbar itself.
