Taxonomic Analysis by Elimination and Correction outperforms other tools in estimating taxonomic composition at a very low rank, especially when closely related species/strains exist in a metagenomic sample.
MoTeX-II is a word-based high-performance computing tool for single and structured MoTif eXtraction from large-scale datasets where runtime does not depend on the length of motifs, the size of the alphabet, or the error thresholds
A comprehensive analysis pipeline and workflow provides detailed research data reports for RNA-Seq; the software is available as multi-threaded version for cluster use or single thread for a virtual machine
COPS introduces an optimized vectorization of the Viterbi decoding algorithm built to work with the HMMER tool suite to improve speed of biological sequence analysis, with long and short models being processed up to two times faster.
Metavir 2 provides a user-friendly comprehensive analysis environment for viral metagenomes, including tools for multiple comparison and analysis, both from raw reads and from contig-assembled viromes.
DFLAT, designed for curating human fetal gene functions by combining the existing Gene Ontology framework with 13,344 new annotations, is available for use in novel developmental genomics analyses.
HTS barcode checker pipeline is software for identifying illegally traded species in DNA mixtures, using DNA barcodes compared against the NCBI database for CITES-protected species, though not intended for Whole Genome Shotgun data.

News from the web
BMC Bioinformatics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the development, testing and novel application of computational and statistical methods for the modeling and analysis of all kinds of biological data, as well as other areas of computational biology.
BMC Bioinformatics is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
