Custom WordPress plugin that adds a complex genomic project builder tool to the Pacific Biosciences website.
PacBio wanted a tool that enabled scientists to input information about the DNA they want to sequence and then download a zip file of PDFs that are customized for their specific project.
PacBio came to me with a well-defined set of project requirements and a complex flowchart for the project builder logic. I took them through a process of building out a functional prototype so we could make sure we nailed the user experience and functionality before a design was made.
I then took the design and created a highly interactive and user-friendly tool that includes:
- Custom WordPress plugin development
- Bootstrap based UI
- Interactive forms with complex logic
- Animated scrolling
- Downloadable zip file and customized PDF documents that are generated on the fly
- Email functionality
- Easily customizable from the WordPress admin
