Projects / Arka


Arka provides a nice GUI for the gp package of command-line utilities for manipulation and display of DNA/RNA/protein sequences, the WU-BLAST and FASTA program families, and additional graphical tools for various aspects of sequence analysis (e.g., GC plots and 3D graphs). It provides editable and saveable windows for standard input, output and error, and a dialog for any command-line program with specifications in a configuration file.
