Promethease UI Update


I have used Promethease for over a year now and absolutely love it.

I only have 2 or 3 complaints. So rather than just complain I took time to fix at least one of these problems. Or at least I attempted to.

Problems with Promethease

  1. Medication was removed
  2. No way to “bookmark” SNPs
  3. Essentially able to only view 1 SNP at a time (maybe 2 if you are lucky)

So, I took some time to partially fix the last one.

All I did was modify parts of the CSS to make the IU hide certain elements and shrink others.

Changes / Features

  1. Able to see at least 4 SNPs at once (possibly able to see more depending on how tall you make the web browser window)
  2. Screen must be at least 1000px. (basically, full screen for most people)
  3. Hide certain UI elements
  4. Shrink UI elements
  5. Scrolling within each SNP if its card is too big
  6. Only show CEU population group
  7. Scrolling within various elements for each SNP.

Upcoming Changes

  1. Change CSS for elements to use CSS Grid for better flexibility and better appearance.
