BrickIt provides a portable Web-based registry that helps synthetic biologists to plan and organize the construction of Biobricks. Biobricks are standardized fragments of DNA (genes, switches, and more complex functional modules) that are openly and freely shared across the community of synthetic biologists (see biobricks.org. Brickit implements a database-backed Django Web server to coordinate and track the biobrick samples within a lab, institute, or local community.
Entrance is a program for browsing MySQL databases. It includes a "match box" search facility that is simlar to the Mac's Spotlight.

SPL is a powerful scripting language. It features hashes, regular expressions, objects, exceptions, a built-in template language, and has a C-style syntax. It can be used stand-alone or embedded in other applications. The entire SPL toolchain (compiler, assembler, virtual machine, etc.) is pretty small (about 100k on x86 architectures). One of the more advanced VM features is the capability to dump the entire VM state to a file and resume later. It even is possible to resume on another machine with a different architecture.
Bumblebee is a system for managing instruments and other resources (e.g. analytical equipment) that must be shared between a number of users. Bumblebee is designed to be more efficient than a wall calendar or a whiteboard for both users and administrators. Bumblebee is also able to generate reports of resource usage with breakdowns by user, research group, and research project.
