8 years developing Bioinformatics apps

The SING research group has been developed many Bioinformatics applications since the last 8 years. Here you can find a timeline summarizing some of the most successful ones!

SING group will be present in Transfiere 2016 forum with InNoCBR

The European Forum for Science, Technology and Innovation (Transfiere), which celebrates its 5th edition next 10th and 11th of February at Málaga (Spain), represents a business chance to find potential, technological partners of the scientific and business areas. Transfiere is the biggest professional and multi-sectoral forum of Spanish Innovation, involving public administrations, business associations, european centers of innovating companies, technology centers, clusters, companies (big, SMES, EBTs, and startups), foundations, institutes of technology, scientific and technological parks and universities.

In this year's edition, SING research group will participate with InNoCBR, an intelligent system for the detection and classification of nosocomial infection cases developed in collaboration with the Preventive Medicine Service at Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Ourense (CHUO) and the support of the University of Vigo.

Bioinformatics software repositories: OMICtools & MyBioSoftware

Nowadays, there is a vast amount of researchers and developers creating bioinformatics software, tools and libraries. Although web search engines are important resources when looking for existing bioinformatics software, dedicated sites are also welcome. In this scenario, OMICtools and MyBioSoftware are two valuable resources, since they provide high quality, curated lists and reviews of existing bioinformatics software.

OMICtools is a manually curated metadatabase that provides an overview of more than 4400 web-accessible tools related to genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics. All tools have been classified by omic technologies (next-generation sequencing, microarray, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance) associated with published evaluations of tool performance.

Similarly, MyBioSoftware is a blog-like web page that offers a complete, up-to-date list of bioinformatics software, classified in different categories such as assembly tools, proteomics or RNA analysis, among others.

Launching of the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

Thomson Reuters recently launched the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which extends the universe of publications in Web of Science in order to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. ESCI makes content visible in Web of Science Core Collection to key opinion leaders, evaluators and funders, even if it has not yet reached a notorious citation impact on an international audience.

Journals included in ESCI have passed a first editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in SCIE, SSCI, or AHCI, which have rigorous selection criteria and evaluation processes. All ESCI journals will be indexed according to the same standards, including cover-to-cover indexing, cited reference indexing, subject category assignment, and indexing all authors and addresses.

ALTER available on Debian and Ubuntu operating systems!

Our successful sequence alignment converter, ALTER, is available on Debian stretch (which "testing" release right now) and in Ubuntu Xenial (the future Ubuntu 16.04 release) as a package named "alter-sequence-alignment" [Debian package] [Ubuntu package].

We are very proud that our software be worth to be included in these fantastic operating systems!

Mass-Up included in MASSyPup(64), the Mass Spectrometry Live Linux

Mass-Up, our open-source mass spectrometry software for proteomics designed to support the preprocessing and analysis of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry data, has been included in the latest release of MASSyPup(64), the Mass Spectrometry Live Linux.

MASSyPup(64) is a Puppy Linux based Live distribution with is focused on the analysis of mass spectrometry data. Since MASSyPup(64) is strongly focussed on efficient mass spectrometry data processing workflows and Data Mining, we are proud and happy that Mass-Up has been included there and can reach a broader range of users.

New AIBench release: AIBench meets Maven and GitHub!

Latest release of AIbench SDK framework (2.5.4) meets Maven and GitHub. With this version, we have changed many things:

Moreover, we have deprecated the nighty builds and the CVS version control.

jARVEST (Java web harvesting library)

jARVEST (Java web harvesting library) is a simple web harvesting or web scraping framework. jARVEST is implemented via a powerful JRuby-based domain specific language (DSL), allowing you to develop harvesters with minimum code
