Dear all: Iis anyone aware of any projects creating an extensible platform that can act as an interface to Bioconductor that could be used to deliver Bioconductor methods to non-command-line-using users? To save some replies: * I am aware of limmaGUI and affylmGUI, but the tcl/tk interface is frustrating to some users who have difficulty installing tcl/tk independently while having R recognize it. Macs and some *nix have been particularly problematic for some reasons. * I am also aware of CARMAweb, bioconductor packages and a few other basic R-web-interfaces, but I would like something more extensible outside of the R framework that could work both in R and in Python/Perl for example. Something more modular. * I'm thinking something like Galaxy or Bioclipse. I realize Ross Lazarus is working on Rgenetics against Galaxy and Galaxy might be a good solution. If anyone is aware of other projects (beginning or ongoing or planned) in this area, I'd deeply appreciate getting pointers to them!
