What’s the Answer? (Bioinformatics Tools on Biostar)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of thecommunity and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

Just about a month ago, BioStar added a tool section as a place to announce and update new and old bioinformatics tools. So, in a sense, today’s post is are answers in search of your questions :):

We just added a new section to the site called **Tools** We designate this section to announcements regarding bioinformatics software tools, both new and old.

There are about 10 tools listed currently for various areas of analysis. This dovetails nicely with a the “obituary” section Mary created at Biostar for no longer supported tools and databases she discussed earlier this week. Circle of life and all that :).
