- The MPI Bioinformatics Toolkit for protein sequence analysis

Our own research on protein evolution now heavily depends onthe toolkit server. We will therefore continue to integratenew tools as they become available and improve the usabilityof the toolkit. For instance, a project manager will be addedthat will further facilitate the organization and long-termstorage of job results. On the technical side, we are currentlyin the process of porting the Toolkit to a new Rails-based webframework that permits shorter development cycles and more flexibletool interactions. The new architecture is fully object orientedand renders the Toolkit easily installable. We will packagethe Toolkit framework together with our in-house tools and distributeit freely under the GNU LGPL.
