Welcome to CULTURE - The Bioinformatics Sandbox


What is CULTURE?

CULTURE is a bioinformatics server built and maintained by Dr. Wolfgang Rumpf for the use of students in his classes at UMGC.  It is referred to as a "sandbox" because the software and databases are carefully controlled so that for any given input (e.g. from a homework exercise) a given piece of analysis software will consistently produce a known, specific output.

CULTURE is now hosting the following services:

  CULTURE Hardware

  CULTURE Software

  Why is it called CULTURE?

Ian Banks is one of my favorite Sci-Fi authors.  His CULTURE series is amazing - if you haven't read it, I'd suggest starting with "Player of Games".
