Applied Bioinformatics Course

Bioinformatics tools

There are many bioinformatics tools over the Internet. Thanks to the great contribution of the scientific community of bioinformatics research and development. They make the bioinformatics programs and packages freely available to the end user biologists. The web-based tools can be accessed through the Internet using the web browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer. Users may also download and install some of the packages on a local machine to run the programs. We use both web-based platforms as well as command line tools integrated in a Linux-based bioinformatics environment BioLand developed locally at our center. The three major international bioinformatics centers, NCBI, EBI and ExPASy, develop, collect and maintain hundreds of bioinformatics tools. They also provide online service for most of these web-based tools.
