We'd love to have you help.  We want to develop both a system for networking
biotools and a set of basic biotools (loci).

I don't have anything called a "design document".  It could have been a few

The new site is just starting to come together, so it is missing quite a bit. 
But as far as an actual design is concerned, it has been changing lately, and
the best way to tell what we're going to do (until the Web site is ready) is to
read the mailing list archive:

we will want a genome map viewer, and the sequence viewers will show a map as

I will make an account for you on our Linux box:

And I will soon send out a list of loci that need developers.
