The project is in a healthy, maintained state
This project is called bioroebe. It focuses on the bio-related life sciences in general - in particular biology and molecular biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, system biology and so forth. The primary function of bioroebe is to provide a "practical glue" between these different topics while also focusing on "getting real work done". For more information about this project, look at the link called documentation on the rubygems webpage of this gem, on the very bottom right side.
