Jmol is a Free, Open Source molecule viewer and editor. It is a collaboratively developed visualization and measurement tool for chemical scientists. Jmol is an active project, and there are new features being added to it on a daily basis. Users are encouraged to modify it to fit their needs and to contribute their changes to the project.
VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) is designed for the visualization and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. It may be used to view more general molecules, as VMD can read standard Protein Data Bank (PDB) files and display the contained structure. VMD provides a wide variety of methods for rendering and coloring a molecule: simple points and lines, CPK spheres and cylinders, licorice bonds, backbone tubes and ribbons, cartoon drawings, and others. VMD can be used to animate and analyze the trajectory of a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. In particular, VMD can act as a graphical front end for an external MD program by displaying and animating a molecule undergoing simulation on a remote computer. VMD uses OpenGL and OpenGL Programmable Shading Language for high performance rendering of large structures.
Lush is a Lisp dialect with extensions for object-oriented and array-oriented programming. It is intended as a programming environment for prototyping numerically intensive applications. Unlike alternatives like Python or SciLab, Lush is designed for easy integration of existing C/C++/Fortran codes.
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.
Berkeley DB XML is a native XML database engine for use within your product. Made available as a C++ library with language bindings for Java, Perl, Python, PHP, and Tcl, it integrates directly into your application (it is not a standalone database server). It provides XQuery access into a database of document containers. XML documents are stored and indexed in their native format using Berkeley DB as the transactional database engine.
Renal Growth is a tool for radiologists and paediatricians to plot renal length and volume measurements against nomograms for age and weight. It allows for multiple observations from birth to 13 years. Individual patient data files can be stored and reused. Length and volume charts can be exported as JPEG files for importing into a PACS system or other clinical record.
MCL-edge is an integrated command-line driven workbench for large scale network analysis. It includes programs for the computation of shortest paths, diameter, clustering coefficient, betweenness centrality, and network shuffles. A module for loading and analyzing gene expression data as a network is provided. The MCL algorithm is a fast and highly scalable cluster algorithm for networks based on stochastic flow. The flow process employed by the algorithm is mathematically sound and intrinsically tied to cluster structure, which is revealed as the imprint left by the process. The threaded implementation has handled networks with millions of nodes within hours and is widely used in the fields of bioinformatics, graph clustering, and network analysis.
FinchTV is a way to easily view and edit your DNA sequencer chromatogram data. It can display an entire trace in a scalable multi-pane view, and will also display quality values (when available). You can edit your base calls and save your data to a new chromatogram file for later use, select and copy sequence for use in other applications, and print your trace out to paper or a file. You also have the ability to search your sequence data using regular expressions or simple base queries, to view raw data from .ab1 files, and to reverse complement your sequence and traces.
Cell Electrophysiology Simulation Environment is a framework to perform electrophysiological simulations. It can, for example, simulate cardiac myocyte electrical activity. It is useful for simulations of action potentials, individual ionic currents, and changes in ionic concentrations.
