SMW+ is a mature, proven semantic enterprise Wiki for teams which need a human-readable and agile knowledge base for collaborating on rich text and data in their day-to-day work. It includes features for authoring and sharing articles which are supplemented with powerful semantic features. Users can annotate data in articles to enrich them with knowledge at will (e.g., “2011/01/17 is the due date of the proposal”, or “this process step depends on a previous step Payment”). This data can be used to generate dynamic reports within the Wiki or within Microsoft Office applications. Users who have been granted appropriate rights can adjust the structure of the knowledge base (the ontology) on the fly, adapting the Wiki to current needs based on the current situation. Users can, for example, make expressions in the Wiki which say that the knowledge object “Product” specializes in “Star”, “Cash Cow”, “Poor Dog” and “Question Mark”. Apart from authoring data manually, company-specific business rules can be used to populate the knowledge base automatically with data. Additional data can be integrated into the Wiki from heterogeneous external data silos. In doing this, this data is made available to the users, who may in turn use it to generate reports or even visualize the data in the preferred format.
BLAST is a set of similarity search programs designed to explore all of the available sequence databases regardless of whether the query is protein or DNA. It uses a heuristic algorithm which seeks local as opposed to global alignments, and is therefore able to detect relationships among sequences which share only isolated regions of similarity. It can be run locally as a full executable, and can be used to run BLAST searches against private, local databases, or downloaded copies of the NCBI databases. It runs on Mac OS, Win32, LINUX, Solaris, IBM AIX, SGI, Compaq OSF, and HP- UX systems.
IronBox Linux is a Linux distribution based on Linux From Scratch and designed for usage in high security server environments. Its main goal is to ensure a stable and secure deploy where patching and system upgrades do not depend on security bugs, but on the task team schedules and the needed features of the system or the software it runs.
OpenChrom provides mass spectrometric analysis of chromatographic data, in a way similar to ChemStation from Agilent Technologies. It handles data files from different LC/MS, GC/MS systems and vendors, such as (*.D) chromatograms from Agilent Technologies, Finnigan ITS40 (*.ms), NetCDF (*.cdf), MzXML (*.mzxml), and other formats. It is flexible and can be extended by plugins.
