handheld genome browser prototype

Proposal for the biologist's version of a calculator, a prototype of a genome browser for a handheld computer. Similar to a mathematical calculator, this device is intended as a complement to a textbook, to provide a basic understanding of the data and background for how the genome works.

Data can either be stored on a compact flash or microdrive device and synchronized to the network. Or instead of a microdrive, the data can be stored on a server and queried via a wireless card.
