Analyze ECGs is a graphical data analysis tool for use on analog input DAQ data, such as that of RTLab. It is useful for opening the '.nds' file format produced by RTLab's data acquisition program, DAQSystem (it can also open regular ASCII files). Aside from being a general-purpose multichannel analog data editing tool, it also contains custom features useful for analyzing cardiac data. However, it can be used for editing/viewing general-purpose data as well. Additionally, this program can convert '.nds' files to ASCII format data.
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.
Asymptopia Flashcard System uses Motif and LaTeX to produce, manage, and use attractively formatted flashcards. You load some or all of your "collections" and set the timer for pop-up frequency. The GUI interface and "Collection Manager" make creating and modifying flashcards as simple as pushing a single button. A knowledge of LaTeX is only required when entering special symbols.
Babase is a baboon data management system. It is designed to facilitate the retrieval, storage, maintenance, and analysis of the following broad data categories: group membership, social status (dominance rank), life events, sexual cycle events (including progeny), sexual cycle day-to-day status, dyadic social interactions, focal animal samples, and multi-party social interactions. Integration of other data is supported. Babase is designed for Web access.
BLAST is a set of similarity search programs designed to explore all of the available sequence databases regardless of whether the query is protein or DNA. It uses a heuristic algorithm which seeks local as opposed to global alignments, and is therefore able to detect relationships among sequences which share only isolated regions of similarity. It can be run locally as a full executable, and can be used to run BLAST searches against private, local databases, or downloaded copies of the NCBI databases. It runs on Mac OS, Win32, LINUX, Solaris, IBM AIX, SGI, Compaq OSF, and HP- UX systems.
Bioconductor is a set of packages for R (a GPLd statistical data analysis language) which focus on bioinformatics data analysis, especially gene expression arrays (Affymetrix, cDNA spotted arrays). There are tools for statistical normalization, differential expression, genomic visualization, and biological annotation. Future work includes implementation and development of better statistical methods, distributed computing, visualization, and extensions to related high-throughput laboratory assays. The primary developers are research statisticians.
