PROMPT is a system for retrieval, analysis, mapping and comparison of protein sets. It allows easy mapping of different types of sequence identifiers, automatic data retrieval and integration, many analysis and comparison algorithms, and a full-featured GUI application. Exhaustive statistical tests are conducted automatically in appropriate cases, but can be performed manually. All analysis results can be viewed or visualized and exported in various formats. All methods can be used in your own Java code or with beanshell scripting in your own scripts, a pipeline, or grid systems.
GRIDportal is a Web-based application portal that acts as a frontend to GRID computing. Its aim is to make common GRID applications like Abaqus, Matlab, or BLAST more accessible to the user. Use of GRIDportal does not require any knowledge of Unix nor GRID computing whatsoever. All the user needs to know is how to use the given application, so the step from desktop computing to GRID computing should thus become a much smaller one than it otherwise would be.
Biogenesis simulates in a visual fashion the processes involved in the evolution of unicellular organisms in nature. It tries to be a didactic approximation to the ideas of mutation or evolution, and can be enjoyed also as an entertainment. It's intended to serve as a support to show students some basic biological facts. The idea of Biogenesis is taken from Primordial Life, but it's an independent project.
HapCluster++ is a software package for linkage disequilibrium mapping using coalescent theory. It is based on a Bayesian Markov-chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method for fine-scale linkage-disequilibrium gene mapping using high-density marker maps. HapCluster++ is a C++ implementation of the method described in the paper "Fine Mapping of Disease Genes via Haplotype Clustering" by E.R.B. Waldron, J.C. Whitaker, and D.J. Balding. Genetic Epidemiology. 30: 170–179. (2006).
MyCGR implements the research of the thesis of Peggy Cénac regarding the use of CGR (Chaos Game Representation) to build a new family of tests for the structure of sequences. It can empirically check the level and power of the tests and apply them on DNA sequences. It can generalize the dinucleotide abundance profile to a CGR-based relative abundance profile and use this profile on DNA sequences to build taxonomy trees and to define CGR-trees.
abi2xml is a command line utility to convert an ABI trace file to an XML file. ABI trace files contain DNA sequence data and are produced by ABI PRISM TM 377 DNA sequencers. This bioinformatics utility is written in C++ with the Qt library and is available for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.
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.
