WELCOME TO CHINOOK
Chinook is a peer-to-peer (P2P) bioinformatics service. The goal of the Chinook platform is to facilitate exchange of analysis techniques within a local community and/or worldwide. Chinook operates by turning command-line applications into services which are broadcast over a virtual network. Currently, there are over 25 analysis services that have been made "Chinook-ready". These range from alignment to regulation prediction algorithms. Furthermore, Chinook is designed to make it extremely easy to add new services.
Chinook clients can be operated from Java, Perl, or within applications like Sockeye. (And soon Pegasys, and OrthoSeq)
