GENOME EXPLORER 1.0
Genome Explorer brings together the tools required to build and compare phylogenies from both sequence and gene order data. It also allows hypothesis testing through simultaneous simulation of chromosomal and sequence evolution. It was written specifically to make interaction with the tools easier for users familiar with a windows style environment – the popup windows and wizards that collect data and set parameters to run the programs are all based on a common design and are both logical and intuitive to use. Many of the available tools are independently useful but frequently used as part of more complex analyses. Genome Explorer anticipates both and therefore has a modular design that allows each tool to be run independently, preserving its full range of functionality and leaving the user fully in control of their data. All classes that run bioinformatics programs implement a common interface, all parameter collection panels are derived from a single class and parameters for each program are stored in a customised object.
