Churchlab WWW History
Church Group Internet History
1968 marks my introduction to computer networks. Andover MA and Dartmouth NH, connected as part of a small GE-635 network (1964), delivers real-time interactive programming !.
1969 - "Researchers at four US campuses create the first hosts of the ARPANET,
connecting Stanford Research Institute, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, and the
University of Utah."
1974, as I began computational biophysics research, I take a step back to punch-cards and mag-tapes, but forward in terms of relevance and exciting projects.
1992 we offer a very modest Monte Carlo program over the internet using "FTP" since browsers were not yet available.
1993 - "Mosaic, the first graphics-based Web browser, becomes available."
Keith Robison and Pat Gillevet establish some of the first browser-compatible web pages (Church & Gilbert labs).
1995-8 The basic style of our site established -- the
"Central Dogma" (DNA-RNA-Protein) horizontal axis and the "Omics" theme. We strive to keep the home page simple and compatible with a variety of browsers (leaving the bleeding-edge stuff to our subsidiary web pages).
2009, see its current home page: The Lipper Harvard Center for Computational Genetics (CCG), and the huge role that the internet has played in the Human Genome Project (HGP).
