We would like to stress the importance of software development in our team. All themes are equally concerned, and software dissemination is a fruitful ingredient of Sequoia . A special attention is paid to robustness, validation on biological data and availability. We maintain a web server accessible via http://bioinfo.lifl.fr/ for distributing our software and executing it through friendly web interfaces.
We give a list of tools that have been developed recently in the team, and that are in connection with our research program presented here. Many of them have been cited in the preceding paragraphs. These tools are likely to be enriched or improved within the next years.
