StarORF is a tool that facilitates the identification of the protein(s) encoded in DNA sequences and allows for transforming input sequence in its reverse complements. It allows students to define the minimal ORF length detected and highlighted by the software. Students can see putative ORF protein sequence (longer than specified ORF length), visualize start and stop codons in the sequence, and navigate imported sequences. The StarORF site contains a software user manual, video tutorial, and exercises applicable to high school and college classrooms.
Form Saver is a PHP class which fills form inputs with submitted values. It can capture the output of the current page with a form template to extract the list of inputs, process and extract the values of a just-submitted form, and alter the form template to insert submitted input values. The processed form template is output to show the form filled with the submitted values.
Data Validator is a class to validate a set of values based on a list of rules. It supports the following validation orders: sequence (fields validated sequentially), all-at-once, and both (using a dependencies model). It can embed different user-defined validation rules libraries (a default built-in library is provided).
phpLogin is a user login and authentication module for the phpNova framework. It contains all user authentication-related tasks and UI. Dependencies include: phpSession, phpHash, and phpSQL. This module is part of the phpNova framework for PHP, which is currently in the alpha stages of development.
peak-o-mat is a data analysis and curve fitting program. It was designed to fit spectroscopic data but should be suited for any other fitting task. It allows for clearing, transforming, fitting, calibrating, etc. of spectra with few mouse clicks. It can be scripted using the Python language and can be extended by writing modules.
Libgda is a (relatively small) database access library. It provides a wrapper like ODBC but with more features for accessing several database engines, a general data model for use with CSV or XML files, a metadata extractor that retrieves information about database objects in a common way, and a SQL console application (like mysql, psql or sqlite3 consoles).
