Jmol is a Free, Open Source molecule viewer and editor. It is a collaboratively developed visualization and measurement tool for chemical scientists. Jmol is an active project, and there are new features being added to it on a daily basis. Users are encouraged to modify it to fit their needs and to contribute their changes to the project.
Artemis is a DNA sequence viewer and annotation tool that allows visualization of sequence features and the results of analyses within the context of the sequence, and its six-frame translation. It can read and write complete EMBL and GENBANK database entries or sequence in FASTA or raw format. Extra sequence features can be in EMBL, GENBANK, or GFF format.
The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK) is a library of Java classes for chemo-, bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and chemometrics. It provides important algorithms like substructure search, SMILES, Gasteiger charges, QSAR descriptor calculation, 3D structure generation, 2D layout and rendering, many IO formats, atom typing, and more.
Swiss-PdbViewer is an application that provides a user friendly interface for analyzing several proteins at the same time. The proteins can be superimposed in order to deduce structural alignments and to compare their active sites or any other relevant parts. Amino acid mutations, H- bonds, angles, and distances between atoms are easy to obtain with the intuitive graphic and menu interface.
PubCrawler is a script for an "alerting" service which scans daily updates to the NCBI Medline (PubMed) and GenBank databases. When PubCrawler is run daily, the results can keep scientists informed of the current contents of Medline and GenBank by listing new database entries that match their research interests.
Engauge Digitizer is digitizing software that converts an image showing a graph or map into numbers. The image file can come from a scanner, digital camera, or screenshot. The numbers can be read on the screen, and written or copied to a spreadsheet. Highlights for beginners include an intuitive interface and extensive context-sensitive documentation. Highlights for experts include compensation for image distortion, cartesian and polar coordinates, linear and logarithmic coordinates, automatic scanning, graphical previews, and browser help.
Berkeley DB XML is a native XML database engine for use within your product. Made available as a C++ library with language bindings for Java, Perl, Python, PHP, and Tcl, it integrates directly into your application (it is not a standalone database server). It provides XQuery access into a database of document containers. XML documents are stored and indexed in their native format using Berkeley DB as the transactional database engine.
Renal Growth is a tool for radiologists and paediatricians to plot renal length and volume measurements against nomograms for age and weight. It allows for multiple observations from birth to 13 years. Individual patient data files can be stored and reused. Length and volume charts can be exported as JPEG files for importing into a PACS system or other clinical record.
