- libbiojava-java: Java API to biological data and applications
BioJava is an open-source project dedicated to providing a Java framework
for processing biological data. It includes objects for manipulating
sequences, file parsers, DAS client and server support, access to BioSQL
and Ensembl databases, and powerful analysis and statistical routines
including a dynamic programming toolkit.
BioJava is provided by a vibrant community which meets annually at
the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) that traditionally
accompanies the Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology (ISMB)
meeting. Much like BioPerl, the employment of this library is valuable
for everybody active in the field because of the many tricks of the
trade one learns just by communicating on the mailing list.

This is a wrapper package which should enable smooth upgrades to new
- libbiojava-java-demos: Example programs for BioJava
The package comes with a wealth of use cases for BioJava. It is generated
together with the API documentation but because of its size of ~3.7MB it
was decided to distribute it separately.
- libbiojava-java-doc: [Biology] Documentation for BioJava
This package contains the HTML documentation describing the API of BioJava
which was generated automatically by JavaDoc.
- libbiojava1.7-java: Java API to biological data and applications
This package presents the Open Source Java API to biological databases
and a series of mostly sequence-based algorithms. The APIs are not
compatible between versions. In analogy to the dealing with shared
libraries of the C language, the jar file of this package has the
API version in its name. It is symbolically linked to the expected
biojava.jar filename in the package libbiojava-java. This will help
keeping multiple versions of the biojava API in parallel.
