Wunderbar is a program which is able to identify mislabeled samples in genotype data when a few extra independent genotypes are available ("genetic barcoding"). Wunderbar calculates the likelihood that genotype mismatches have occurred by chance. It is capable of reliable and sensitive detection of sample mismatches and swaps even in the presence of numerous genotyping errors and in the presence of linkage disequibrilium between the individual genotypes. It only requires a few SNPs to work well.
wasora is a computational tool designed to aid a cognizant expert, whether an engineer, scientist, technician, or geek, to analyze complex systems by solving mathematical problems by means of a high-level plain-text input file containing algebraic expressions, data for function interpolation, differential equations, and output instructions amongst other facilities. At first glance, it may look like another high-level interpreted programming language, but it should be seen as a syntactically-sweetened way to ask a computer to perform a certain mathematical calculation. For example, the famous Lorenz system may be solved by writing the three differential equations in a human friendly plain text file.
Project REI is Web-based software designed to allow rapid creation of data handling interfaces. Its goal is to reduce the number of small, unique, often heavily scripted solutions, which have been implemented to support departments in daily business. This is done by providing centralized access to many different interfaces to fulfill different needs. In short, Project REI is used to replace overblown spreadsheets and local databases. Setting up interfaces is done through a central GUI and allows for immediate results. Changes to interfaces can be seen and tested in real time. Even though it cannot fulfill all needs, many mundane but still important requirements can be supported with little effort.
Vanubi is a programming editor highly inspired by Emacs but with a more modern fashion. It aims to be unobtrusive yet smart, simple yet complete with the necessary components built in (monolithic), keyboard based with contextual help, file/directory based (not project based), and fast to open for rapid file editing. It features splitting views, auto indent, sessions, fuzzy search everywhere, git support with side gutter and grep, emacs-like and shell-like key bindings, integration with the shell, and an ad-hoc scripting language.
Mover is a system designed to move mail while eliminating as much metadata as possible. In fact, it eliminates virtually all metadata, except for the order and possibly the time that a message arrives at a given site. Addresses are encryption keys. The encrypted messages are sent to all mover locations. The intended recipient uses their key to decrypt the message.
OpenNetHome is a home automation software project with a focus on being able to mix different technologies. It currently supports a number of different RF transceivers for controlling remote switches and receiving temperature and moisture data. It also supports Philips Hue lights. Its user interface is Web based, but all features are also accessible via a TCP/IP interface. It supports plugins for new features but also for new protocol encoders/decoders. Also included is a signal analyzer tool for reverse engineering new RF protocols.
