Powua is a parallel super-computer consisting of many processors that work simultaneously. The Powua client lets users access this high computing power from wherever they are, directly on their computer, through a simple Internet connection. If your preferred software is supported, you can start using it immediately in Powua and speed up all those processes that would otherwise occupy your processor for a long time. Powua subdivides your operation and distributes it to many processors simultaneously.
STPsim is an application that simulates and visualizes switches using the Spanning Tree Protocol. It features a GUI to build and control a custom network topology. A VPython frontend visualizes virtual switches and network cables in a 3D environment. To visualize STP-states, switches and ports change colors and captions in real time.
Pipviewer is a visualizer for multiple alignments of genomic sequences. It highlights conserved regions and allows basic annotations. Its main goal is to find conserved probes for the construction of gene order data sets. Selected regions marked as 'probes' can be exported to fasta format. It can also retrieve gene annotations from the NBCI and display this information along the alignment. Pipviewer is not an aligner. You must compute the alignment with another tool like Clustal or Multi PIP Maker.
This package contains Virtual Hybridization tools. Virtual Hybridization uses sets of short probes to generate datasets for comparative genomics: given a DNA sequence and a set of probes, the typical output will give a sequence of oriented probe hits along the DNA sequence. Other tools are supplied to allow simple manipulations such as format conversion and extraction of permutations.
PyTrackProfiler allows you to create high quality PDF route sheets, which useful for planning various kinds of routes (hiking, biking, etc.). It also computes useful information using the track data (time, altitude, etc.) so you can analyze an unknown track. An elevation profile and a projection representation are created. It includes high quality classes for drawing line graphics (XY axis, multi-Y axis, autolabels, autoscale, etc.), parsers for OziExplorer and CompeGPS file formats, support for UTM to latitude/longitude conversion, distance calculation, and angle calculation, support for the Polar HRM hear rate monitor file format, a PDF generator, and more.
Micropolis is a city simulation game engine based on the original classic SimCity source code. Micropolis is based on the Tcl/Tk version of SimCity. It consists of the micropolis module, which is the engine recast as a C++ class; the cellengine module, which is a cellular automata machine engine; and the tileengine module, which is a Cairo based tile renderer. It is intended to be used with the OLPC's Sugar user interface environment, but layered so the core code is useful in other contexts.
