CAVEman: 4D Mapping of Genomic and Medical Information

Image The CAVEman Project aims to create visual maps of information about diseases that have a genetic component, such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. Using an immersive virtual reality environment called the CAVE, the research team will integrate a high-resolution digital atlas of a human body with medical data related to specific diseases. The final result will be a next-generation 4D (space and time) visual system to "see" disease processes and the effects of interventions, such as drugs, on these processes.

JABIRU: Java3D Application Behaviors Immersive virtual Reality Utilities
Image
Jabiru is a set of object behaviors that are controlled by a virtual wand.  This wand can be manipulated through any suitable input device.  Current input device implementations as part of Jabiru include either a mouse + keyboard combination or a 6DOF Joystick (CAVE) device + head tracking glasses.

Osprey: Oligonucleotide Design Software for PCR, Sequencing and Microarrays
 

Osprey calculates optimal oligonucleotides for a range of tasks: sequence assembly (both contig walking and polishing, with Staden assembly augmented functionality), differential expression, and microarrays (cDNA and spotted oligos). Osprey implements the thermodynamics model proposed by SantaLucia, producing very similar results to HyTher™.

Bluejay

Bluejay is a set of Java™ objects for the processing, display and querying of XML encoded linear scale data. The main subject for analysis in our implementation are genetic and protein sequences, where features fall somewhere on the linear molecules. Bluejay is growing with the goal of creating a graphical genetic data viewer with point and click data mining* capabilities, available through your standard Web browser.

MAGPIE

MAGPIE (Multi-purpose Automated Genome Project Investigation Environment) is a software package for the automated curation and presentation of DNA and protein sequences. MAGPIE distills the results of multiple database searches for each sequence (e.g. expressed sequence tags, ESTs) or subsequence (e.g. open reading frames, ORFs, in bacterial genomic DNA) into a summary page that facilitates interpretation of genes' biological roles and origins.
