This is interesting. VADLO comes to mind, it is a bioinformatics software search engine. There are good research cartoons also.

Outsourcing is a tool that can be used to make life easy and also running businesses and other enterprises profitably. Outsourcing can be used by anyone and is not restricted to companies and businesses alone. Destination India today is the most preferred outsourcing country among all. It is not just because of the competitive prices but also top quality custom software development. Superior quality, affordable prices, assured winning results, what else a company needs to stand out in the market. http://www.infysolutions.com/resources/resources.html
