The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) software is a distributed computing infrastructure originally developed out of the SETI home project, but intended to be useful to fields beyond SETI. BOINC is the information technology infrastructure for distributing work in the form of work units and downloading the distributed applications that process them. BOINC does no useful scientific work itself. Scientific computations are run on user computers and results are analyzed after they are validated and transferred from BOINC into a scientific database.

openLISEM is a spatial hydrological model that simulates runoff, sediment dynamics and shallow floods in rural and urban catchments. It is an event based model, that can be used for catchments from 1 ha to several 100 km². The model is designed to simulate the effects of detailed land use changes or conservation measures during heavy rainstorms. It is a model designed to be used in disaster risk management, not for long term estimates.

Echoes it's a radio spectral analysis software for RTL-SDR devices, designed for meteor scattering purposes. Echoes doesn't demodulate neither decode any human-made signal. Its main goal is to analyze and record the total power of natural signals and generate screenshots and tabular data (CSV, GNUplot) output in presence of particular peaks in a selected narrow range of frequencies. Since there is no demodulation, there is no provision for audio listening, except for a notify sound when an event has been recorded.

openLCA provides the features you expect and need for a Life Cycle Assessment software - and more. Especially some of the newer additions are - we think - unique: The ability to deal with really large systems and databases; GIS integration, several of the analysis features to drill down results and identify main drivers and impacts; fast and flexible import and export; working with social indicators also as unassessed, transparent and raw values; and also smaller features like parameters and uncertainty for characterization factors which can be really useful.

SiBELia (Synteny Block ExpLoration tool) is a fast synteny blocks generation tool for many closely related microbial genomes. It assists biologists in analyzing the genomic variations that correlate with pathogens, or the genomic changes that help microorganisms adapt in different environments. SiBELia will also be helpful for the evolutionary and genome rearrangement studies for multiple strains of microorganisms. SiBELia is useful in finding shared regions, regions that present in one group of genomes but not in others, and rearrangements that transform one genome to other genomes.
