EMBOSS

EMBOSS

EMBOSS is The European Molecular Biology Open Software Suite.

EMBOSS is a free open source software analysis package specially developed for the needs of the molecular biology (e.g. EMBnet) user community. The software automatically copes with data in a variety of formats and even allows transparent retrieval of sequence data from the web.

In addition, as extensive libraries are provided with the package, it is a platform to allow other scientists to develop and release software in true open source spirit. EMBOSS also integrates a range of currently available packages and tools for sequence analysis into a seamless whole. EMBOSS breaks the historical trend towards commercial software packages.

EMBOSS contains hundreds of applications including:

  • Sequence alignment
  • Rapid database searching with sequence patterns
  • Protein motif identification, including domain analysis
  • Nucleotide sequence pattern analysis---for example to identify CpG islands or repeats
  • Codon usage analysis for small genomes
  • Rapid identification of sequence patterns in large scale sequence sets
  • Presentation tools for publication

Selected Reviews:

Features include:

  • Properly constructed toolkit for creating robust bioinformatics applications or workflows
  • Comprehensive set of sequence analysis programs
  • All sequence and many alignment and structural formats are handled
  • Extensive programming library for common sequence analysis tasks
  • Additional programming libraries for many other areas including string handling, pattern-matching, list processing and database indexing
  • Each application has the same style of interface so master one and you've mastered them all.
  • Consistent user interface facillitates GUI designers and developers
  • Integrates other popular publicly available packages
  • Free of arbitrary size limits: there are no limits on the amount of data that can be processed. For the programmer, memory management for objects such as sequences and arrays is simplified
