UnicodeDataBrowser is a browser for the UnicodeData.txt file, which contains much useful information but is not easily read by humans. It creates a scrollable table in which columns represent properties. The table may be sorted on any column. Abbreviations are expanded and characters cross-referenced in decomposition and casing fields are named. Regular expression search restricted to a selected column is available. The set of characters for which information is displayed may be restricted to those characters matching a regular expression on a specified property.
BrickIt provides a portable Web-based registry that helps synthetic biologists to plan and organize the construction of Biobricks. Biobricks are standardized fragments of DNA (genes, switches, and more complex functional modules) that are openly and freely shared across the community of synthetic biologists (see biobricks.org. Brickit implements a database-backed Django Web server to coordinate and track the biobrick samples within a lab, institute, or local community.
Profit is a clone of the board game Acquire. Players places tiles on a board to form companies, then buy stocks in those companies. As a company grows, its stock becomes more valuable. If a tile is placed that connects two companies, however, the larger one will acquire the smaller one. The winner is the one with the most money at the end of the game.
OpenEphyra is a question answering (QA) system. It retrieves answers to natural language questions from the Web and other sources. OpenEphyra comes with implementations of algorithms that proved effective in Carnegie Mellon's Ephyra system, which participated in the TREC evaluations. It is platform independent and can be set up in just a few minutes. The goal of this project is to give researchers the opportunity to develop new QA techniques without worrying about the end-to-end system.
