Debian project preferred BioPuppy Linux for Bioinformatics

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , at 8:30 am by asprakash

Last May 15th I released the BioPuppy Linux OS beta version for public. There are lots of interested people include students, staffs, research scholars, Linux enthusiasts and others from various Universities and companies from all over the world downloading BioPuppy and there are trying utilize the features of BioPuppy now. I am sure BioPuppy have a very good futures in open source world and I hope I can provide a better OS for biology through BioPuppy.

Good News for BioPuppy

BioPuppy Linux is now encouraged by one of the Debian project called Debian-Med. The Debian-Med project presents packages that are associated with medicine, pre-clinical research, and life science. Its developments are mostly focused on three areas for the moment: medical practice, imaging and bioinformatics.

Debian-Med project now preferred BioPuppy to add all the debian Bioinformatics packages into BioPuppy Linux. For more details about Debian-Med project, http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMed

This is one of the great achievement to the BioPuppy Linux contributors and for my work. I am really happy about it and I feel this is a kind of recognition to my work from the world. Coz I did not get any recognition from my native area. I am not going to bother about it. I hope I will continue with the same intention and will provide better contribution. The whole credit goes to Puppy Linux. Special thanks to Mr.Barry Kauler encouraged me in this project and supporting all the community members.

Now, I am looking contributors for biopuppy Linux project from bioinformatics area. Those who are interested to contribute for BioPuppy project, please contact me in off line. BioPuppy link is, http://biopuppy.org

I gladly inform you that, our first version of BioPuppy Linux is out, now. You can download it from http://biopuppy.org

What is BioPuppy Linux

BioPuppy is an electronic workbench for bio-informatics and computational biology. It has been designed to meet the needs of beginners. BioPuppy is available as a live CD cum installation CD [and in USB Pen drive] and containing all the required software to boot the computer with ready to use bio-informatics tools. BioPuppy is based of the Puppy Linux. The another objective of this BioPuppy is small in size. Our estimated size of BioPuppy is ~150MB.

More about BioPuppy

BioPuppy contains all the tools available in the basic puppy linux and bioinformatics tools. It provides both standard and cutting edge bioinformatics software tools on a Linux base. It is powerful, configurable and easy to maintain. It has been customized for ease of use and provides an ideal system for scientists handling and analyzing biological data. The Biopuppy is a light weight version of bio OS. Bioinformatics-related customizations include a large number of bioinformatics programs and programming libraries, the addition of graphical menus for much of the bioinformatics software, and links from the desktop to key documentation and applications. The system also includes a comprehensive, categorized and searchable documentation system for bioinformatics software.

Features of BioPuppy
