ballaxy Tools Released

August 7, 2014August 7, 2014

A new release of BALL and BALLView containing our new ballaxy tools is availably.

This new release offers, besides bugfixes, our new ballaxy workflow framework for structure based computational biology. The framework consists of command line tools, a ballaxy workflow server, based on the popular Galaxy workflow engine, offering those tools and a ballaxy plugin for BALLView which allows interaction with a ballaxy server instance. More information, e.g. a list of current tools, our live ballaxy server or instructions on how to set up your own ballaxy instance using docker can be found here. Enjoy!

BALL 1.4 Released

January 28, 2013January 28, 2013

A new stable release for BALL is now available.

This new release mainly focuses on compile and bug fixes. The most user visible changes are probably the rework of the Pubchem Downloader in BALLView, which now uses the new REST interface provided by Pubchem.
