Keywords: Biological sequences - Propositional logic
Scientific Description: Genetix is a design assistant for biologists. The tool allows experts to precompute biological designs (corresponding to DNA sequences) implementing an intended boolean function. The software includes a parallel generator of sequences running on HPC clusters which is able to manage functions with up to 4 input variables. An open database allows biologists to explore and query available designs.
Functional Description: Genetix is a tool for generating biological sequences implementing boolean functions.
Release Functional Description: The first version of the tool is able to generate biological implementations of boolean functions with up to 4-inputs.
News Of The Year: The development of Genetix started this year.
