BioWeka‘s aim is to add bioinformatics functionalities such as e.g. alignments to the popular machine learning framework Weka (Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis). BioWeka introduce various input formats for bioinformatics data and bioinformatics methods like alignments to Weka. This allows users to easily combine them with Weka’s classification, clustering, validation and visualization facilities on a single platform and therefore reduces the overhead of converting data between different data formats as well as the need to write custom evaluation procedures that can deal with many different programs. We encourage users to participate in this project by adding their own components and data formats to BioWeka.
