BioBlocks is a web-based visual editor for describing experiments in Biology. It is based on Google’s Blockly and MIT Scratch. Experiments described in BioBlocks are automatically translated to machine specific code of a compatible hardware platform for automated execution of the experiment. An English translation and a graphical protocol workflow of the experiment are also generated. BioBlocks aims to remove the programming bottleneck so that biologists (non-programmers) can take advantage of automation in their work. Our goal in LIA is to make programming of Biological protocols simpler and fun!

A pre-print of BioBlocks on biorXiv is available BioBlock.

BioBlocks is under continuous development as we try to add more features to it. If you are interested to collaborate with us fork us on GitHub (LIA UPM GitHub).
