Good hint - but I can not pass their captcha checking mechanism because
I do not see the question the captcha is asking. :-(
If anybody want to tweak in the following text
You might like to try a look at the packages bundled into official Debian by the Debian Med team. There is some overview available at
These packages are maintained by a constantly growing team of bioinformaticans who are members of the Debian Med team. All packages are available via the official Debian mirrors and as a consequence of this are available in Ubuntu as well. The team is working closely together with the BioLinux team which is based on Ubuntu LTS. This means that packages which are currently only available in BioLinux will be moved directly into Debian and finally also end up in official Ubuntu.
(even in a changed version) I'd be very happy.
Kind regards and thanks for the hint
