Bionformatics Toolbox 2.0.
The Bioinformatics Toolbox 2.0 offers computational biologists and other research scientists an open and extensible environment. Most functions are implemented in the open MATLAB language, enabling users to customise the algorithms or develop their own. The new mass-spectrometry data analysis feature is specifically designed for pre-processing data, including baseline correction, smoothing, alignment, and re-sampling, enabling users to perform customised analysis at a faster rate.
The Bioinformatics Toolbox 2.0 also builds on the classification and statistical inference and prediction tools in the Statistics Toolbox by providing several new classification functions and tools for identification of discriminating features, and visualisation of complex data is enhanced with new graph-viewing functions and manipulation tools that display interaction maps, hierarchy plots, and pathways. Additional features of the Bioinformatics Toolbox 2.0 provide access to specialised visualisation tools, ranging from sequence alignments and microarray principle component plots to building and interactively viewing and manipulating phylogenetic trees.
