Davis, California, June 27, 2005 --
Allometra, LLC announces the release of PyMood for the Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger platform.|
PyMood is a genomic data visualization program, which allows visual displaying of BLAST output files and expression data. PyMood runs on Windows and Mac OS X. The visualization principle in PyMood is coloring and positioning objects (genes, proteins, etc.) in space according to their data values. The 3D output in PyMood can be rotated, zoomed in and out, shifted, and queried.
The 2D Visualization capabilities of PyMood allow presentation of processed data file as a canvas comprised of the colored elements, which represent individual genes or proteins. The color of the elements reflects their data values. The canvas elements can be sorted in a two-dimensional plane according to their color (data) values. These visual outputs can be automatically published: the program generates web pages with canvas and 2D plot images where every element is clickable and linked to a database of the user's choice.
The PyMood BLAST Launcher allows running BLAST programs in a user-friendly environment; post-processing of BLAST outputs (BLAST parser is built into the PyMood BLAST Launcher); automated creation of browsable web tables from parsed BLAST data outputs, manipulations with FastA files: combining, splitting files and sequences, creation of non-redundant sets, and more.
