Brook for GPUs is a compiler and runtime implementation of the Brook stream programming language for modern graphics hardware. The goals for this project are to demonstrate general purpose programing on GPUs, to provide a useful tool for developers who want to run applications on GPUs, and to research the stream language programming model, streaming applications, and system implementations.
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.
ThermonucleotideBLAST is a software program for searching a target database of nucleic acid sequences using an assay specific query that is based on biochemical assays (i.e. a pair of oligonucleotide sequences representing PCR primers or Padlock probes, a triplet of oligos representing PCR primers and a TaqMan probe, or a single oligo representing a hybridization probe). Unlike existing programs (i.e. BLAST) which use heuristic measures of sequence similarity for identifying matches between a query and target sequence, ThermonucleotideBLAST uses free energy and melting temperature.
