Visual Acorn: Bioinformatics on the NetBeans Platform
By Geertjan on Dec 01, 2009
The developer behind Visual Acorn is Mateusz Markowski, a student from one of the courses Karol Harezlak and I did in Poland, for the Warsaw JUG on 22-23 November 2008. Visual Acorn enforces authentication, after which you can draw visualizations (pathway maps) of genome scale metabolic reaction network models. You can save these visualizations in a MySQL database on a sysbio3 server at Surrey University. Furthermore, visualizations can be managed (save/edit/delete) and you can display visualization results of Flux Balance Analysis, which is a calculation of the maximal theoretical value of the objective function under media conditions specified by user-linear programming.
Below are some screenshots Mateusz sent me:
