HIERARCHICAL ACCESS SYSTEM FOR SEQUENCE LIBRARIES IN EUROPE (HASSLE) v5
HASSLE has been completely redesigned to feature a structured application
programmer's interface (API) and to comply with the scientist's preferences
for generic graphical user interfaces on the Mac and PC. The layered design
has been implemented in ANSI C, using the NCBI toolbox and the IBM class
library user interface (ICLUI) for the graphical user interface (GUI) on PC,
Mac, and Motif/DecWindows platforms. 'Software inspection' was applied for
quality control: The written code was independently reread and compared
with the design specification,paired with extensive documentation.HASSLE v5
runs on most UNIX flavours, various flavours of IP implementations on VMS,
Windows 3.x, MacOS, and OS/2. Major authors of HASSLE v5 are F.Eggenberger,
R.Doelz and N.Redaschi.
Excellent documentation is available via WWW and in printed form.
Installation, User, Maintainer, Programmer Manual:
A comprehensive set of tools,based on HASSLE v5 and integrated with the GCG
(Genetics Computer Group) interface, has been released as well. The collec-
tion covers EXPLORA (Angelos Kalogeropoulos, Centre Universitaire d'Orsay,
France), GENEFINDER programs (main author Victor Solovyev, Department of
Cell Biology, Baylor College of Medicine and access to the MPsrch software,
running on the powerful 4096-processor MasPar Computer of Basel University
using MPsrch (C) University of Edinburgh, distributed by Intelligenetics.
Note that a previous announcement of services run via HASSLE covered the
FastAlert service which is available via anonymous ftp as well.
This release of HASSLE tools does not yet include the SRS interface but an
announcement will separately be issued later.
Main authors of HASSLE v5 tools are F.Eggenberger, R.Doelz, N.Redaschi and
