TORQUE is a resource manager that provides control over batch jobs and distributed compute nodes. It is a community effort based on the original *PBS project and, with more than 1,200 patches, it has incorporated significant advances in the areas of scalability, fault tolerance, and feature extensions.
Moab Grid Suite is a professional grid workload management solution that integrates scheduling, management, monitoring, and reporting of workloads across independent clusters. Moab makes moving to a grid easy by adding grid-optimized job submission and management in a matter of minutes. Moab optimizes data staging and seamlessly integrates with existing security mechanisms or with grid security tool kits such as Globus. It gives sites extensive control over ownership-based access, priority, and service levels. It provides fine-tuned control over the workload and resources to make the grid usable.
ProteomeCommons.org IO Framework is a proper Java framework for handling spectra and peak lists. The framework can read and write to a number of different spectra and peak list formats, and it provides a simple, intuitive Java object model for working with spectra or peak lists. All classes support two methods of handling peak list and spectrum data: in-memory or stream. The goal of this framework is to support all the popular MS and MSMS data formats, and to eliminate any time or effort involved in figuring out how to read and write peak list or spectrum files.
PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (ie: anything compressed with PBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
The Bioinformatics Benchmark System is an attempt to build a reasonable testing framework, tests, and data, to enable end users and vendors to probe the performance of their systems. It is not trying to be the last word in informatics benchmarking, as there are simply too many codes, tests, data sets, and databases. The goal is to create a core of tests that all may download and use to probe specific elements of system performance. The end goal is to enable a pluggable set of tests, including the core tests, so that performance data may be gathered.
Project VDW is a an attempt to further research into van der Waerden sequences. The software consists of a client that generates sequences, and a utility to generate unique starting seeds. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop a BOINC-based client that can supply the massively parallel computing resources necessary to solve currently untouched sequences.
LinkGrammar-WN is a lexicon expansion for the Link Grammar Parser. The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of the English language that is capable of handling a wide variety of syntactic constructions and is considered quite robust. The LinkGrammar-WN project aims to import lexical information from WordNet in an effort to increase the size of the LGP lexicon. This project is of interest to anyone interested in NLP (natural language parsing) of English text.
The OMCSNet-WordNet project aims to improve the quality of the OMCSNet dataset by using automated processes to map WordNet synonym sets to OMCSNet concepts and import additional semantic linkage data from WordNet. It is based on OMCSNet 1.2, a semantic network and inference toolkit written in Python/Java. OMCSNet currently contains over 280,000 separate pieces of common sense information extracted from the raw OMCS dataset. This project is also based on WordNet, an online lexical reference system that in recent years has become a popular tool for AI researchers.
OMCSNetCPP is a C++ API and inference toolkit for accessing OMCSNet, a semantic network mined out of the Open Mind Common Sense knowledge base. The goal of this project is to provide a class library that allows programmers to easily add common sense reasoning capabilities to C++ applications.
