Bioclipse: A Rich Client for the Life SciencesBusiness And Industry , UI / RCP
Bioclipse is a workbench for the life sciences built on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP). Leveraging on the powerful architecture of Eclipse, Bioclipse delivers an extensible platform and workbench for scientists, teachers, and students in fields like biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, and general chemistry. Bioclipse has an extensive set of graphical editors, and also provides many new extension points tailored towards the life science domain. All functionality is available from the Bioclipse Scripting Language (BSL) as well as from the user interface.
