BAT1K Website

Academic consortium project website

BAT1K Consortium  (various third level institutions).

The BAT 1K project is an initiative to sequence the genomes of all living bat species, approximately 1300 species in total. The BAT 1K consortium required a website to be the hub of this world wide collaborative effort.

The website communicates the aims of the project, and also allows researchers to sign up to the project through a detailed form. This form, using cascading fields, allows users to select the specific bat species that they are working on from a list of approx. 1300 entries. The website also includes several video elements. The main header video was created in After Effects.

The website also has an online database of all bat species. This database has a simple, spreadsheet type interface, allowing project members to quickly and easily update the database as the project evolves.
