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!

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 Thursday, July 31, 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.

DNA Word Analysis: Special Issue for BioMed Research International

The BioMed Research International (IF 2.880) has opened a call for papers for the Special Issue entitled "DNA World Analysis", where D Glez-Peña is Guest Editor.

They invite authors to submit original research and review articles that explore DNA sequence features based on word composition. We are interested in articles that present new methodologies, new software tools, and/or new results and applications for DNA word counts. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Development of models and testing of distribution word counts (e.g., testing second Chargaff parity rule and its extensions)
  • Tools for detection/prediction of patterns, motifs, regulatory elements, functional elements, and structural elements
  • Word distance distributions
  • Segmentation
  • Epitope based prediction tools
  • Evolutionary phylogeny based on comparative genomics

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
