This page lists the software projects our group is involved in. Most of the software is hosted at bioinfweb. You can find detailed user and developer documentations to most of the projects there, if you follow the links below. Additionally formal definitions of the XML formats used in our software is privided on BioInfWeb.

Developers / contributers:   Ben Stöver, Horst Bleckmann

GraphicMeasurer is a program that is able to analyze graphics and videos by locating and tracking objects (e.g. moving animals). The extracted geometric objects can be referenced with a spread-sheet-like result sheet language which allows to generate tables containing positions, angles or more complex data derived from the located objects.


Project home:   http://treegraph.bioinfweb.info/Version1
Current version:   1.0rc1 (Jul 19, 2006 12:00:00 AM)
Developers / contributers:   Jörn Müller, Kai Müller

Project home:   http://bioinfweb.info/Software/IndelCoder
Current version:   0.5 (Aug 30, 2005 12:00:00 AM)
Developer:   Kai Müller

Automates encoding of indels according to 10 different schemes, including simple binary and complex matrix character schemes.

Note that IndelCoder is not available for download anymore, since all its functionality has been moved to SeqState.
