We are proud to announce the release of version 7.1 of our flagship software suite BioNumerics.
Focus on performance and responsiveness
For the first upgrade of , our development efforts focused on the further improvement of the software’s overall performance. The result is a faster and more responsive package, ready to tackle vast amounts of data.
- The BioNumerics startup time has been reduced with up to 30%.
- Overall data import underwent a drastic speed up.
- Working with large character sets is significantly faster (up to 100x).
- Opening comparisons went from seconds to instantaneous.
- Displaying experimental data in a comparison is up to 30% faster.
- The similarity calculation is multi-threaded, resulting in a 50% speedup even for modest dual core computers. A “Maximum number of processors to use simultaneously” setting has been added to control the behavior of BioNumerics on multi-core systems.
New featuresThe following features have been added to BioNumerics version 7.1:
- Similar to plugins, individual scripts can now be stored in a BioNumerics relational database. This makes it possible to update scripts for all database users simultaneously. Furthermore, using the “Run arbitrary scripts” privilege, database administrators can prevent users from running any other scripts than those stored in the relational database, ensuring that everyone is using exactly the same script functionality.
- The RiboPrinter plugin is a new plugin that allows the import of DNA fingerprints generated by the RiboPrinter system (DuPont Qualicon) in XML and text format.
All known bugs have been solved.
