Open Bioinformatics Foundation, Bioinformatics.org

Ο μη κερδοσκοπικός οργανισμός Open Bioinformatics Foundation έχει ως στόχο τη διάδοση και υποστήριξη λογισμικού ανοιχτού κώδικα στον τομέα της Βιοπληροφορικής. Παρόμοια το Bioinformatics.org είναι ένας μη κερδοσκοπικός οργανισμός, βασισμένος σε ακαδημαϊκούς, με στόχο να υποστηρίξει την ανάπτυξη λογισμικού ανοιχτού κώδικα. Έχει πάνω από 20.000 μέλη και καθώς και πάνω από 300 project.

The Open Bioinformatics Foundation is a non profit, volunteer run organization focused on supporting open source programming in bioinformatics. The mission of the foundation is to support development of open source toolkits for bioinformatics, organize and run the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference, and generally assist in the development and promotion of open source software development in the life sciences.
The foundation hosts servers for mailing lists, websites, and code repositories for the following open source projects:

BioDAS – XML Infrastructure for exchanging genome annotations
BioJava – Java toolkit
BioMOBY – Data and application execution through web services
BioPerl – Perl toolkit
BioPipe – Pipelines and workflow project for creating bioinformatics protocol
BioPython – Python toolkit
BioRuby – Ruby toolkit
BioSQLRDBMS Database schema for storing sequences, annotations, taxa data.
OBDA – a standard for sequence data access locally, remotely, and via RDBMS
EMBOSS – Sequence analysis toolkit.

The Bioinformatics Organization, Inc. serves the scientific and educational needs of bioinformatic practitioners and the general public. With over 20,000 members and 300 groups, Bioinformatics.Org is the largest international affiliation in the field of bioinformatics, and the number of resources that offers is on-par with that of the largest government centers.
Bioinformatics.Org is one of the largest affiliations in the field of bioinformatics, and the number of resources that we offer is on-par with the number offered by NCBI and EBI.
However, we distinguish ourselves with our open membership and project hosting: anyone, anywhere can participate. Bioinformatics.Org is also well-known for its emphasis on open access to biological information as well as on Free and Open Source software.
