Web interface on computer libraries
A number of computer libraries have been developed in the past for providing reusable functions/subroutines. Examples include Biojava and Biopython. These libraries are very powerful and can be integrated in programs as they provide enormous flexibility. In order to install and use these libraries one need reasonable knowledge of computer programming and resources. However, most of the users (biologists, pharmacologists, research students) have limited knowledge of computer programming. In order to bridge the gap between the users and the existing libraries, we, at CRDD have made an attempt to develop web interfaces.
R based Libraries
R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. A number of libraries have been developed using R
Python based Libraries
Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days.
Java based Libraries
The Java programming language is a high-level language that can be characterized by all of the following major features; i) Architecture neutral, ii) Portable, iii) High performance,iv) Robust and v) Secure.
