WorksBase, Garlic, pDraw32 1.1.28


Bio-Rad of Hercules, Calif., has released WorksBase software, a bioinformatics platform for proteomics information management. The package provides a centralized data warehouse that integrates data generated from Bio-Rad’s ProteomeWorks hardware and software with external reference database information.

WorksBase also includes the capability to integrate proteomics data with others sources of information, including genomic, chromatographic, array, metabolic, biochemical, and molecular modeling data.

Bio-Rad has also launched version 6.2 of its PDQuest 2D analysis software. The new release offers enhanced annotation image viewing capabilities, as well as the ability to combine multiple pH range 2D gels.

Davor Juretic’s work group at the University of Split, Croatia, has released version 1.1 of its Garlic open source molecular visualization program.

Available at, the latest version is able to draw six more structures than version 1.0, including a helical wheel for a given sequence segment and an averaged hydrophobicity and hydrophobic moment for a given sequence.

pDraw32 1.1.28, freeware DNA analysis software, is now available from AcaClone Software at

New features of the current revision include analysis of GC-distibution and optional plotting of results, oligonucleotide database management, and oligonucleotide primer site analysis.
