Tutorial quote: Imagine a utility that lets you make an annotated backup of any of your project files with the click of a mouse or a single command. It would let you review the history of your backups and recover any version you wished. And it would integrate with your file browser and would keep track of files that have changed since your last backup. The utility exists -- Subversion, and its companion program TortoiseSVN, can help you safely manage your files as you work with them.

Linux tools for study and analysis of biological information

Post date: May 24, 2005, 18:05 Category: Software Views: 2771 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article wants to show some of the advantages of Perl programming on Unix, for extraction of the biological information of the DNA, RNA and proteine sequences Databases. They can be used in comparative processes or analysis. The Human Genome project and the DNA clonation techniques have accelerated the scientific progress in this area. Daily generated information in this field outgrows often the capability of processing this information from an evolutive viewpoint.

The fast proliferation of the biological information on different genomes (dowry of genes of an organism) is driving bioinformatics as one fundamental discipline for the handling and analysis of these data.

The PartImage Handbook

Post date: May 21, 2005, 15:05 Category: Software Views: 2895 Comments
Tutorial quote: - Partition Image is a Linux/UNIX partition imaging utility: it saves partitions formatted using the Ext2FS (the linux standard), ReiserFS (a new journaled and powerful file system), JFS IBM journaled file systems from AIX, NTFS (Windows NT File System), FAT16/32 (DOS & Windows file systems), or HPFS (OS/2 file system) file system formats to an image file. Only used blocks are copied. The image file can be compressed in the GZIP/BZIP2 formats to save disk space, and split into multiple files to be copied on removable media (ZIP for example), or burned on a CD-R ...

- This allows the user to save a full Linux/Windows system, with a single operation. When problems occur (viruses, crash, error, ...), you just have to restore, and after several minutes, all your system is restored (boot, files, ...), and fully working.

- This is very useful when installing the same software on many machines: just install one of them, create an image, and then restore the image on all other machines. After the first one, each subsequent installation can be made automaticaly, and only requires a few minutes.
