extension of bioinformatics tools to Iceape and Iceweasel browsers

Code bioFOX aims at implementing various bioinformatics tools as an extension on the Iceape and Iceweasel browsers. Analysis of your favorite gene(s) usually require(s) retrieving it from a database like NCBI or Swiss-Prot and then performing one or more tasks including but not limited to:

  • Translation of a nucleotide sequence; * Blast search (eg.

blastn, blastp etc.) of the desired nucleotide/protein sequence; * Calculation of properties (like PI, charge, molecular weight, AT/GC content etc.) of a protein/nucleotide sequence; * Conversion between formats (Genbank, Fasta, Swiss- Prot etc.); * Prediction of sequence for sub-cellular localization (PREDOTAR, TargetP, pSORT etc).
