BSMAP 2.90 – Whole Genome Bisulfite Sequence MAPping program

BSMAP 2.90

:: DESCRIPTION

BSMAP(Bisulfite Sequence Mapping Program)is a short reads mapping software for bisulfite sequencing reads. Bisulfite treatment converts unmethylated Cytosines into Uracils (sequenced as Thymine) and leave methylated Cytosines unchanged, hence provides a way to study DNA cytosine methylation at single nucleotide resolution. BSMAP aligns the Ts in the reads to both Cs and Ts in the reference.

BRAGI 20091106 – A Protein Visualization and Modeling Program

BRAGI 20091106

:: DESCRIPTION

BRAGI is a well-established package for viewing and modeling of three-dimensional (3D) structures of biological macromolecules.BRAGI enables you to view and explore the three-dimensional (3D) structure of any macromolecule. You can explore proteins, DNA, RNA, carbohydrates, and complexes, such as between transcriptional regulatory proteins and DNA, or enzymes and drugs.

NJplot 2.4 – Phylogenetic Tree Drawing Program

NJplot 2.4

:: DESCRIPTION

NJplot is a tree drawing program able to draw any phylogenetic tree expressed in the Newick phylogenetic tree format (e.g., the format used by the PHYLIP package). NJplot is especially convenient for rooting the unrooted trees obtained from parsimony, distance or maximum likelihood tree-building methods.

YASARA 19.12.14 – Molecular Graphics, Modeling & Simulation program

YASARA 19.12.14

:: DESCRIPTION

YASARA (Yet Another Scientific Artificial Reality Application)is a molecular-graphics, -modeling and -simulation program.With an intuitive user interface, photorealistic graphics and support for affordable shutter glasses, autostereoscopic displays and input devices, YASARA creates a new level of interaction with the ‘artificial reality’, that allows you to focus on your goal and forget about the details of the program.

YASARA View is available for free and contains the basic functions you need to explore a macromolecular structure interactively, comparable to other molecule viewers.

YASARA Model contains YASARA View and adds all the functions you need to explore, analyze and model small and macromolecules in a production environment. This includes many features you often miss: unlimited undo/redo, macro recorder, quad-buffered stereo with shutter glasses or the DTI virtual window .

YASARA Dynamics contains YASARA Model and adds support for molecular simulations.

YASARA Structure contains YASARA Dynamics and adds all the functions needed to predict and validate macromolecular structures, including ligand docking and highly accurate force fields with knowledge-based potentials, and an optional module for NMR structure determination.

phyl_util – Phylogenetic Utility Programs

phyl_util

:: DESCRIPTION

Phylogenetic Utility Programs includes programs to aid in the summary of the posterior distribution of phylogenetic trees from the program MrBayes are provided.The first program, post_prob, will tabulate the percentage of times each tree topology appears in the posterior distribution output by MrBayes, thus providing posterior probabilities for each tree topology. The second program, post_root, will tabulate the percentage of times each possible root position appears in the posterior distribution output by MrBayes, thus providing posterior probabities for each root.
