Darwin 2.0 Available
Reference Page: http://cbrg.inf.ethz.ch/darwin2.html

MOTIVATION

We announce the availability of the second release of Darwin v. 2.0 , an
interpreted computer language especially tailored to researchers in the
biosciences. The system is a general tool applicable to a wide range of
problems.

RESULTS

This second release improves Darwin version 1.6 in several ways: it now
contains

1.    a larger set of libraries touching most of the classical problems
from computational biology (pair-wise alignment, all versus all
alignments, tree construction, multiple sequence alignment),
2.    an expanded set of general purpose algorithms (search algorithms
for discrete problems, matrix decomposition routines, complex/long
integer arithmetic operations),
3.    an improved language with a cleaner syntax,
4.    better on-line help, and
5.    a number of fixes to user-reported bugs.

AVAILABILITY

Darwin is made available for most operating systems free of charge from
the CBRG. Just go to
