Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

The Wolfram Solution for Bioinformatics

Pull in your data or ours, apply sophisticated symbolic and numeric analysis, visualize, generate interactive reports or instant applications—all in one system, with one integrated workflow.

The Wolfram bioinformatics solution seamlessly integrates specialized capabilities—like built-in computable genome and protein data and sequence alignment—while providing the most automated and reliable computation, development, and deployment environment available.

Does your current tool set have these advantages?

  • Free-form linguistic input produces immediate results without the need for syntax
    Unique to Wolfram technologies
  • Built-in curated genomic and proteomic data, ready for use without preprocessing
    Unique to Wolfram technologies
  • High-level language with automated interface construction for quick prototyping of applications
    BioPerl, BioJava, and BioPython require extensive programming to prototype interactive applications
  • Powerful integrated statistical and graphical tools for analyzing genomic, proteomic, and other data
    R projects like Bioconductor focus on genomic data only
  • Built-in high-level computation and automatic report generation
    BioPerl, BioJava, and BioPython do not include automatic report generation
  • Easy-to-use parallel computing capabilities for solving computation- or data-intensive problems on multicore computers
    Extensive programming is required to parallelize processes in all other systems
  • Complete high-level workflow enabled by symbolic function architecture
    R does not have symbolic functionality built in
