BioBar Is like PowerBar | The Guide To Bio-Databases July 18, 2007Posted by ramunas in bio-software.
If FDA approved software for diagnostic use, Biobar – a free open-source bioinformatics power-browsing toolbar for Mozilla-based browsers (Firefox/Flock/Mozilla/Netscape & Seamonkey) – would be my suggestion. It is developed by Jawahar Swaminathan from European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) and Wellcome Trust Genome Campus.
Although Biobar is intented for “biologists and bioinformatics people”, as clinician I use it almost for two years as quickl and very efficient access tool for NCBI Databases, GoogleScholar, Scirus, OMIM, Ensembl (etc.) search and BLASTn’ing (sequence alignment) purposes. Current version (1.5.2 , released 25 Oct 2006) provides browsing and data retrieving access to over 46 different databases (Genomic, Proteomic, Functional, Literature, Taxonomic, Structural, Plant and Animal-specific databases) and is fully customizable.
Other related bio-application is BioFox (by Saleem Mohammed).
Got IE? Forget it.
