The Internet of Things will present a wide array of benefits to our society. As we prepare for this
shift it is important we consider the effect these things will have on our computer networks. This paper
introduces the Internet of Things, provides a review of changes in current networking standards that will
enable us to connect to our things, and presents three new standards established by the Internet
Engineering Task Force (IETF). New standards are required because things will not only operate on
defined Wireless Local Area Networks, but must also be able to communicate information through a
MESH network topology that will enable all devices to interconnect. The Internet of Things will present
challenges to current hardware, networks, and protocols. It is critical new standards be created to allow
the next generation of the Internet to continue to change the way the human race interacts with machines.
The Autism-Genetic Database is a web application that provides a client interface for bio-informatics

Capstone project at the University of Kansas. The project involved meeting with stakeholders for gathering requirements, producing prototypes, gathering feedback, development, iterating on the requirements and design, and testing.
