libGenome is a development library designed to make common operations on DNA and protein sequences easy. libGenome provides functionality to read and write sequence and annotation data in several file formats. It provides a common manipulation interface for sequence and annotation data in any supported file format. Some of the basic manipulation functionality offered by libGenome is concatenation, truncation, reverse complementation, and translation of sequences. It was intended to be used on genome size sequences and is optimized accordingly. This is a cross platform library written in ANSI C++ and is currently supported on any platform with gcc. Metrowerks CodeWarrior on Windows and Mac OS are also supported.
The Full-text Index Data structure library, libfid for short, is a portable software library for accessing indexed data through a simple C interface. It implements, among others, functions for reading indexed data from files, and for performing common operations such as fast string matching. Easy alphabet handling for mapping between printable and binary alphabets is integrated from the ground up. Currently, the enhanced suffix array is the only full-text index data structure supported. A very simplistic program for constructing enhanced suffix arrays is included.
The libmba package is a collection of mostly independent C modules potentially useful to any project. There are the usual ADTs including a linkedlist, hashmap, pool, stack, and varray, a flexible memory allocator, CSV parser, path canonicalization routine, I18N text abstraction, configuration file module, portable semaphores, condition variables, and more. The code is designed so that individual modules can be integrated into existing codebases rather than requiring the user to commit to the entire library. The code has no typedefs, few comments, and extensive man pages and HTML documentation.
The massXpert software package is a mass spectrometry environment for linear (bio-)polymers. It inherits all the innovations of GNU polyxmass. It allows the detailed definition of new polymer chemistries in the XpertDef module. These chemistry definitions are then used in the desktop calculator-like mass calculator (XpertCalc) and in the sophisticated polymer sequence editor and (bio-)chemical/mass spectrometric simulations module (XpertEdit). Available simulations include polymer and monomer chemical modifications, polymer sequence cleavage, gas-phase fragmentation, m/z ratio calculations, and more.
MCL-edge is an integrated command-line driven workbench for large scale network analysis. It includes programs for the computation of shortest paths, diameter, clustering coefficient, betweenness centrality, and network shuffles. A module for loading and analyzing gene expression data as a network is provided. The MCL algorithm is a fast and highly scalable cluster algorithm for networks based on stochastic flow. The flow process employed by the algorithm is mathematically sound and intrinsically tied to cluster structure, which is revealed as the imprint left by the process. The threaded implementation has handled networks with millions of nodes within hours and is widely used in the fields of bioinformatics, graph clustering, and network analysis.
mkESA is a program for constructing enhanced suffix arrays (ESAs) from biological sequence data. The program is based on an implementation of Manzini's lightweight Deep-Shallow algorithm, which can also utilize multiple CPUs/cores for extra performance. The generated output is compatible with the output of mkvtree from the Vmatch package.
octopus is a program aimed at the ab initio virtual experimentation on a hopefully ever increasing range of systems types. Electrons are describe quantum-mechanically within the Density-Functional Theory (DFT), in its time-dependent form (TDDFT) when doing simulations in time. Nuclei are described classically as point particles. Electron-nucleus interaction is described within the Pseudopotential approximation.
