At the start of my PhD project with Aarhus University, I was tasked with designing a front-end interface that allows easy access for mutagenized plant lines for researchers across the world.
This project was my first experience working closely with database management and AJAX. A search feature with AJAX-powered suggestions allows users to search for plant lines of interest. The site also incorproates an order feature, where researchers can order plant lines of interest. Finally, a administrative backend was designed ground-up to allow for the project team to process plant line orders.
The design is based on a folding grid design established by Golden Grid System. It allows me to have tight control over the vertical rhythm of the design due to a rigid baseline grid yet a responsive, fluid and flexible horizontal columns.
