GnomeView: User Test Results and Creation of a Client-Server System
Richard J. Douthart and Gregory Thomas
Pacific Northwest Laboratory; Battelle Blvd. Richland Washington, 99352
GnomeView is a graphics oriented, database integrated, interface to the Human Genome. A test version has been available to the scientific community via FTP (1) for over a year. The test version includes database abstractions, a users manual, and the GnomeView executable.
GnomeView queries have been monitored electronically and user opinion polled by survey. Each query is tallied and monitored with respect to its specific nature. Results are summarized weekly at the Pacific Northwest Laboratory. These inquiries reveal important information about usage trends of Graphics Users Interfaces in general and the GnomeView interface in particular.
The results of the usage and user opinion surveys have been the basis for formulating specifications and requirements for GnomeView acting in a client-server mode. Present plans are for the server to be located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory integrated with other DOE developed software tools.
This work is supported by the DOE Genome Program (project 13511) under contract DE-AC06-76RLO 1830. PNL is operated for the DOE by the Battelle Memorial Institute
