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).
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.
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.
Silverpeas is a collaborative Web portal. It is used to classify the contents on themes, independent of the spaces and folders in which they are stored. It supports subscribing to themes. The WYSIWYG interface for editing was simplified. The portal is accessed by way of a Web browser. There are personalized tools for the workspace. Interfaces and glossaries are available in multiple languages (French and English).
DAE Tools is cross-platform equation-oriented process modelling, simulation, and optimization software. Various types of processes (lumped or distributed, steady-state or dynamic) can be modelled and optimized. They may range from very simple to those which require complex operating procedures. Equations can be ordinary or discontinuous, where discontinuities are automatically handled by the framework. Model reports containing all information about a model can be exported in XML MathML format, automatically creating high-quality documentation. The simulation results can be visualized, plotted, and/or exported into various formats.
