Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) faculty and researchers use many different types of software tools to accomplish a great deal of their biological analyses. Use the following links to explore the different software tools further.

A standalone package to assemble ESTs generated using Sanger and/or Roche-454 pyrosequencing technologies into contigs.

A program to identify plant transcription factors (TFs), transcriptional regulators (TRs), and protein kinases (PKs) from protein or nucleotide sequences and then classify individual TFs, TRs, and PKs into different gene families.

Plant MetGenMAP
A visualization and analysis package that allows you to identify changed pathways and enriched GO terms from gene expression and/or metabolite profile data and to visualize the profile data in a biochemical pathway context.
