You can access standard file formats for biological data, online databases, and Web sites. Bioinformatics Toolbox enables you to:
MATLAB provides tools that let you turn your data analysis program into a customized software application. These include development tools for building graphical interfaces, a visual integrated development environment, and a profiler. MATLAB application deployment products let you integrate your MATLAB algorithms with existing C, C++, and Java™ applications, deploy the developed algorithms and custom interfaces as standalone applications, convert MATLAB algorithms into Microsoft® .NET or COM components that can be accessed from any COM-based application, and create Microsoft Excel® add-ins.
You can integrate MATLAB with commonly used bioinformatics tools such as BioPerl, SOAP-based Web services, and COM plug-ins.
