Software Tools


FPCBrowser is a Java-written, platform-dependant and GUI-based software tool. FPCBrowser was initially designed as a portable physical map viewer to comprehensively view FPC contig maps and related information such as clones, fingerprints, and markers in multiple platforms. A Java-based relational database, HSQLDB, was adopted in FPCBrowser to store all source data of a FPC contig map and the fingerprints of BAC clones in a physical mapping project. Some utilities have been implemented to extract useful information from FPC databases. A program module of the clone deconvolution was appended to FPCBrowser for BAC library screening using the new high-throughput five-dimensional clone pooling strategy.
