    BioIT World: Source of Debate
    Submitted by Ron Cecchini; posted on Monday, July 22, 2002 (4 comments)

    By Curtis Franklin Jr.

    ``Open source software is gaining popularity at biotech companies, but thorny issues, such as intellectual property, remain. Do the benefits outweigh the risks?

    ``For an industry in which 15 years can elapse between startup and first revenue, the allure of `free' software isn't hard to fathom. Biotech companies, like those in many other industries, have embraced the use of software distributed under free or open source licenses.''

    metalife knowledgebase
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, September 09, 2002
    Dear Gentleman, metalife knowledgebase offers the user a ?single entry point? for research and analysis of available decentralized allocated data. metalife knowledgebase also increasingly integrates data that have been generated by means of own newly developed tools. for instance, by means of the text extraction tools and based on the metalife tmp (tmp = text minding process), data can be derived immediately from scientific publications and used for supplementation of annotations to protein entries or addition of new classes of information to the metalife knowledgebase. the metalife knowledgebase is based on standard components ( pc, sql server 2000). it contains the majority of public accessible molecular biological data as well as indices to the primary data collections, serves as a central in-/output memory for the metalife tools and applications, saves information and knowledge references that are created by highly developed metalife technologies, allows the easy integration of proprietary data and applications, compatible with internet technology. the metalife knowledgebase forms the fundament of our progressive bio-informatics package. best regards your Metateam
    metalife bioinformatics explorer
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, September 09, 2002
    Dear Gentleman, In april 2002 the metalife team released the first version of the metalife explorer. with metalife explorer the next central metalife tool is implemented in a first version. It enables the user to access the content of metalife knowledgebase thoroughly. All integrated data sources are exploited with one query. Simple queries as well as advanced queries are possible. The user does not need to know the internal data structures of the different data sources. Cross database queries are possible. A compact yet comprehensive dossier about a gene or a protein can be obtained with a single query. Data obtained from structured databases stand in line with text extracted data. Among others, information of the dossiers includes sequences, pathways, publications, patents and relation to diseases. metalife explorer serves as a core part of the metalife working environment. best regards your Metateam
    metalife finder
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, September 09, 2002
    Dear Gentleman, Metalife finder offers, as an alternative to the user interface of metalife explorer, a classic search method. The tool is designed for those users who would purposefully like to access separate primaty data collections. By integrating the metalife working environment, an interface was created to all other applications. The most important product features are: ? parser based user interface ? classic access to separate data collections ? based on the metalife knowledgebase ? possible inquiries about multiple databases and data categories ? integrated in the metalife working environment best regards, your metateam
    Good information source for bioinformaticians
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, April 26, 2004
    I beleive this website is a good source of information for those involved in Bioinformatics, Biocomputing or related fields. As a Bioinformatician myself I found its contents quite useful. If you would like to check it out here is the address. www.
