Hologic Gen-Probe - Athena
A collaborative project undertaken on behalf of Hologic Gen-Probeto manage their scientific processes. The system automates the process of testing human genetic samples from the receipt of samples through testing to results entry and the generation of standardised reports. Athena is a platform-independent intranet application developed using J2EE (Java) on a Tomcat server, back-ended by a MySQL database. Reports are generated in a number of different formats (including HTML web pages, Microsoft Word documents and Adobe Acrobat PDF files) using XML, XSLT and FOP.
