Parsed, spreadsheet representations (use right click, save as): FASTA files of all localised proteins (see also the ApiLoc BLAST server)

The raw data used to feed into this website is maintained on the ApiLoc github repository, and is likely to be more up to date than what is presented here on the website.

Biology-Related Software

Some software was created and built upon for ApiLoc, available as free software.
  • PlasmoAP, same algorithm as at PlasmoDB but written independently
  • to run locally.
  • ExportPred, supplementary website
  • reach - a Ruby library for more easily working with arrays
  • bbbin - Ben's Bioinformatics Bin - a collection of working and non-working bioinformatics scripts written in variety of programmaing languages

Other Software

The ApiLoc website was created entirely with free software. Some of these software are as follows. ApiLoc was built using Ruby on Rails and the javascript library sorttable with RadRails and Eclipse, on an Ubuntu development computer and server, and tested with Firefox. LibreOffice / OpenOffice and the now obsolete Mozilla Ubiquity were also used heavily used during the curation process.
