Homepage Upgrade

Hugo Mascot This site was upgraded from the Jekyll static generator to Hugo. I am fairly impressed with hugo’s simplicity and speed. The theme functionality and standardized folder structure makes life easy for the already complicated world of HTML. The background image credit should be given to APOD. I also incorporated workbox in order to keep this site PWA compatible. Interest in Hugo has grown after this experiment, it is most likely to be the main HTML generation method for all projects going forward.

About Us

SparqLite LLC is a business incubator that promotes ideas by employees and helps translate them into self-sustaining systems. Founded by a team that created the International Glycan Repository, a bioinformatics data store for glycoscience-related (-omics, as in genomics or proteomics) researchers. This was published in the Oxford Academic Nucleic Acids Research. One main focus of the repository was utilizing RDF as a persistence layer as well as a publicly open datastore(triplestore).
