Framework for the Distribution and Development
of Sequence Analysis Packages
Bio-get is command line tool that functions as a biology-focused App Store to help streamline bioinformatics analysis for smaller research groups by making it more user friendly. Bio-get distributes many popular bioinformatics tools and in the near future will allow developers to post new tools together with documentation, tutorials, and example data. Bio-get is for Unix-like systems such as Linux and Mac OSX.
Simply download the tarball and launch Bio-get in a terminal window from the contained bin directory (i.e. .../Bio-get/bin/bio-get). Use the 'bio-get help' command to see usage or 'bio-get list' to list available tools for installation.
