Themes (to be incorporated in an effective logo for the site):
--Questions/information seeking ("seq")
Academic and industrial scientists around the world (new graduate school students to professors, to established corporate scientists). Overwhelmed with data, need simplicity and/or answers to their experimental questions. Highly educated, no nonsense, expect nothing but professional content on the forum.
Explanation of current logo and site name:
"SEQUENCING" is the act of deriving the DNA code present in every cell (made up of the letters "A,G,C,T"). The site name is wordplay on SEQ- as in sequencing as a homophone for SEEK-ing answers. The current logo is a stylized read-out from the OLD generation of instruments (which the users currently does not focus on but are all familiar with). See the multicolored trace at right on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequen…sequencing This explanation is just background information for the designer, NOT IMAGERY DESIRED FOR THE NEW LOGO.
