APBioBox II – Bioinformatics software and databases in a box

The original APBioBox project was an APBioNet project supported through a grant from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada from 2002-2003 and hosted in the Dept of Biochemistry, National University of Singapore. Through collaboration with the Asia Pacific Science and Technology Center (APSTC), Sun Microsystems, this project was expanded to include a BioBox for the Solaris platform, now called BioClusterGrid. Since then, we are looking at expanding the portfolio of platforms supported, as well as to integrate other software and databases from the APAN-APBioNet collaboration, BioMirrors project in the new APBioBox II initiative
