Re: Re: Re: GUI Frontends f?r EMBOSS und BLAST

Hi all,

you are familiar with the Debian packages of Matt at
http://debian.bioinformatics.unsw.edu.au right?
They are very useful, we'd merely need to 
a) convince Matt to upload the packages
b) assist him taking over the respective responsibilities

I am thinking of RFPing MyGrid (www.mygrid.org.uk) that comes with the
User Interface Taverna (http://taverna.sf.net/) of Tom Oinn to model workflows in
Bioinformatics. This effort is making extensive use of EnsEMBL as a
backbone of bioinformatics functionality. I spoke with Tom yesterday
who is also attending the ISMB in Deroit, the public machines of which I
am just using to write this eMail, apparently he got several offers of
people to create Debs and Rpms for Taverna already. Since quite a number
of 3rd party libraries are used and Java is not that welcome yet in
Debian, the effort will be more tedious than one might anticipate from
the start.

Many greetings
