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.
This multi-variant simulator and read-generator tool efficiently generates single- and paired-end reads with user-defined insert size, and is currently optimized to simulate short sequence reads with deep coverage for large genomes, in a limited infrastructure setup.

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.
