TEpeaks takes ChIP-seq (and similar data) alignment files and identifies narrow ChIP peaks. It is an extension of MACS by adding the functionality of handling reads with multiple alignments. It also allows normalization by bin correlation.
25 Apr 2022 signalp updated to version 6.0g
SignalP predicts the presence and location of signal peptide cleavage sites in amino acid sequences from different organisms: Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria, and eukaryotes. The method incorporates a prediction of cleavage sites and a signal peptide/non-signal peptide prediction based on a combination of several artificial neural networks.
25 Apr 2022 IGV updated to version 2.12.3
The Integrative Genomics Viewer is a high-performance visualization tool for interactive exploration of large, integrated genomic datasets.
25 Apr 2022 IGVTools updated to version 2.12.3
IGVTools provides utilities for working with ascii file formats used by the Integrated Genome Viewer. The files can be sorted, tiled, indexed, and counted.
25 Apr 2022 VEP updated to version 106
VEP (Variant Effect Predictor) determines the effect of your variants (SNPs, insertions, deletions, CNVs or structural variants) on genes, transcripts, and protein sequence, as well as regulatory regions.
25 Apr 2022 smrtanalysis updated to version 11.0
SMRT® Analysis is a bioinformatics software suite available for analysis of DNA sequencing data from Pacific Biosciences’ SMRT technology. Users can choose from a variety of analysis protocols that utilize PacBio® and third-party tools.

Ultraplex is primarily designed for the demultiplexing of sequencing data generated using in-house library preparation protocols with custom adaptors
20 Apr 2022 SURVIVOR updated to version 1.0.7
SURVIVOR is a tool set for simulating/evaluating SVs, merging and comparing SVs within and among samples, and includes various methods to reformat or summarize SVs.
20 Apr 2022 delly updated to version 0.9.1
DELLY is an integrated structural variant prediction method that can detect deletions, tandem duplications, inversions and translocations at single-nucleotide resolution in short-read massively parallel sequencing data. It uses paired-ends and split-reads to sensitively and accurately delineate genomic rearrangements throughout the genome.
19 Apr 2022 cutadapt updated to version 4.0
cutadapt removes adapter sequences from DNA high-throughput sequencing data. This is usually necessary when the read length of the machine is longer than the molecule that is sequenced, such as in microRNA data.
19 Apr 2022 rilseq updated to version 0.82
RILseq computational protocol
17 Apr 2022 nvchecker updated to version 2.8
nvchecker (short for new version checker) is for checking if a new version of some software has been released.
15 Apr 2022 iqmol updated to version 2.14.0
free open-source molecular editor and visualization package. It offers a range of features including a molecular editor, surface generation (orbitals and densities) and animations (vibrational modes and reaction pathways).
14 Apr 2022 anvio updated to version 7.1
Anvi’o is an open-source, community-driven analysis and visualization platform for microbial ‘omics. It brings together many aspects of today’s cutting-edge strategies including genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, pangenomics, metapangenomics, phylogenomics, and microbial population genetics in an integrated and easy-to-use fashion through extensive interactive visualization capabilities.
