Biobar 2.0.9 – Firefox Toolbar for Browsing Biological Data and Databases

Biobar 2.0.9

:: DESCRIPTION

Biobar is a bioinformatics oriented browsing toolbar for Firefox that provides access to major biological data resources directly from your browser.The main advantage of this tool is that it allows a biologist to browse and retrieve data from Genomic, Proteomic, Functional, Literature, Taxonomic, Structure, Plant and Animal-specific databases. The latest release of Biobar provides access to over 40 biological data collections.In addition to the browsing features, Biobar also provides links to important bioinformatics sites and services including those at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ).

ANDY 0.2 – Large Biological Database Searching on Computer Clusters

ANDY 0.2

:: DESCRIPTION

ANDY  (seArch coordination aND analYsis)  is a set of Perl programs and modules for easily running large biological database searches, and similar applications, over the nodes of a Linux/Unix computer cluster in order to achieve speedup through parallelization. Users specify their cluster runs through a straightforward XML configuration file, in which they specify a template for the pipeline or sequence of commands they want to run on the nodes, as well as the locations and types of data sources for the command lines and other information.
