List of tools
The list of tools shows the available software packages, databases and other computer projects created by NBIC, or in collaboration with NBIC.

Where do these tools come from?
Within NBIC's bioinformatics research programme BioRange methods are being developed to extract useful information from biological data in order to find the answers to biological questions. Various software packages prove useful for a wider community. These tools are therefore further developed and made publicly available.
At the same time, both researchers and scientific programmers are working together in the support programme BioAssist to create workflows for data analysis. Which tool works best depends on experimental set-up, the type of data and analysis required. Various tools are professionalised and turned into sustainable and user-friendly applications. New tools are also developed to complete the data analysis pipeline.
NBIC Development Project Environment
NBIC stimulates sharing of tools and experience to avoid duplicating development efforts. All tools are publicly available and everyone is invited to use them. Any feedback is very welcome and will be used for further professional development.
Please take a look at the software repository of the NBIC Development Project Environment for software tools developed in collaborations that involve NBIC. This is a single site that keeps all software development together; this makes sure that each of the bioinformatics software projects benefit from the attention that other projects get.
