UGENE is free open-source cross-platform set of integrated bioinformatics software.

It integrates dozens of well-known biological tools and algorithms, mproviding both graphical user and command line interfaces. Using UGENE Workflow Designer one can arrange the required tools and algorithms into a workflow schema.

In order to provide maximum possible performance UGENE utilizes multicore CPUs and GPUs to optimize some of its computational routines. Another way to speed up computations is to use Amazon EC2 cloud resources.

 UGENE 1.14.2
