Description

EMBOSS is a free Open Source software analysis package specially developed for the needs of the molecular biology (e.g. EMBnet) user community. The software automatically copes with data in a variety of formats and even allows transparent retrieval of sequence data from the web. Also, as extensive libraries are provided with the package, it is a platform to allow other scientists to develop and release software in true open source spirit. EMBOSS also integrates a range of currently available packages and tools for sequence analysis into a seamless whole. EMBOSS breaks the historical trend towards commercial software packages.

Within EMBOSS you will find around hundreds of programs (applications) covering areas such as:

  • Sequence alignment,
  • Rapid database searching with sequence patterns,
  • Protein motif identification, including domain analysis,
  • Nucleotide sequence pattern analysis---for example to identify CpG islands or repeats,
  • Codon usage analysis for small genomes,
  • Rapid identification of sequence patterns in large scale sequence sets,
  • Presentation tools for publication,

and much more.
