DNA-Crypt 2.1 – Encrypts files into DNA Sequences

DNA-Crypt 2.1

:: DESCRIPTION

DNA-Crypt is a cryptography tool which encrypts files into DNA sequences. These sequences can be transfered to bacteria or other organisms without influencing them. You can use cryptographic keys, like RSA, AES or Blowfish, or, for maximum security, you can use a one time pad with DNA Crypt.

Phylo 3.3.2 / Open-Phylo – Gaming Framework to Align Genomic Data

Phylo 3.3.2 / Open-Phylo

:: DESCRIPTION

Phylo is a human-based computing framework applying “crowd sourcing” techniques to solve the Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) problem. The key idea of Phylo is to convert the MSA problem into a casual game that can be played by ordinary web users with a minimal prior knowledge of the biological context.

Open-Phylo is an open crowd-computing platform to solve the multiple sequence alignment problem.

Colony B 2.5.1 – mobile Game for analysing Microbiome data

Colony B 2.5.1

:: DESCRIPTION

Colony B is a fast paced puzzle game specifically designed for phones and tablets. In Colony B, you are in charge of growing a colony of bacteria. Bacteria accumulate to survive. Your goal is to identify clusters of bacteria that are accumulating. Theses clusters generate points based on their density, and allow you in turn to grow your colony.

Rosetta@home 3.65 – Grid Software for Protein Folding

Rosetta@home 3.65

:: DESCRIPTION

Rosetta@home needs your help to determine the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases. By running the Rosetta program on your computer while you don’t need it you will help us speed up and extend our research in ways we couldn’t possibly attempt without your help. You will also be helping our efforts at designing new proteins to fight diseases such as HIV, Malaria, Cancer, and Alzheimer’s.

Protein Purification 1.8.0 – Protein Purification Simulation

Protein Purification 1.8.0

:: DESCRIPTION

Protein Purification is the latest version of the award-winning program that has been widely used in schools, colleges and universities since 1983. Its built-in tutorial aims to guide you through a simulation of some of the more commonly-used protein separation techniques and to let you experiment with the simulation. It starts off by letting you examine how a simple mixture of proteins behaves during gel filtration and ion-exchange chromatography and then goes on to allow the design and testing of full purification protocols using more complex mixtures of proteins.
