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!

II Biomedical Research Day (II Xornada de Investigación Biomédica)

The II Xornada de Investigación Biomédica, where the SING group participates both in the organising committee and as well as doing several presentations, took place last 29 may in the "Politécnico" Building at Ourense Campus (University of Vigo).

This second edition of the event will be broadcasted by the UVigoTV in this page.

You can find more information about the event here. You can download the schedule of the event here.

XII Symposium on Bioinformatics (XII Jornadas de Bioinformática)

Bioinformatics: The New Breed”, will be the main theme of the XII Symposium on Bioinformatics that will take place on 21-24 September in Sevilla, Spain, at cicCartuja (CSIC-US), with the focus on the participation of younger bioinformaticians.

Abstract submission closes on Tuesday, July 1, 2014.

BIOCAPS annual report 2013

The BIOmedical CAPacities Support program (BIOCAPS), where the SING group participates, has just published the BIOCAPS annual report 2013 (which can be downloaded here). This report is an annual book comprising a summary of the research areas, researchers involved and activities developed during the first year of the project.

Relevant contributions of the SING group to the BIOCAPS project in 2013 can be found in the section entitled New tools in diagnosis and therapy (pp. 23-25). Here, our research group contributes with several papers, one theses and two developed projects.

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


Mass-up is an open-source mass spectrometry utility for proteomics designed to support the preprocessing and analysis of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry data.
Mass-up loads data from mzML, mzXML and CSV files and includes the following preprocessing tasks: baseline correction, normalization, smoothing, peak detection and peak matching.
In addition, Mass-up allows the user to perform the following analyses:

  • Quality Control
  • Biomarker discovery
  • Principal Component Analysis
  • Hierarchical clustering
  • Biclustering
  • Classification analysis
