libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
GoFigure2 is a cross-platform application for visualization, processing, and analysis of out-of-core multidimensional microscopy data (5D data sets). Users can visualize images, segment cells in 3d, track cells through time, and detect cell divisions to generate lineages. Results are stored in a MySQL database back-end. Once data has been processed, cell-based object features are quantified and can be used for sorting, color-coding, analysis, or exported to external tools. GoFigure2 was developed for biology research including studying the development of embryos (zebrafish and mouse), synthetic biology (signaling), and for drug screening.
Cell server is a project that allows tasks to be remotely queried through the SMS service of one's cell phone. These tasks are then followed out by the software on the user's computer. Cell Server is made to use with any mobile device. It requires the device to be able to send email. Cell Server also requires you to use the Authentication code as the subject, or it won't even read your commands. Commands are then placed in the body field. Cell Server currently only supports the use of one command per email message.
chunkd is a simple storage service based on the GET, PUT, and DELETE operations. It is meant to be used in building larger, replicated, distributed storage systems. Clients connect via TCP and remotely manage storage. Typical applications include distributed filesystems and other distributed storage applications.
