I am maintaining and refactoring two GPL applications at the department of
bioinformatics (read: computer science and biology) at the University of
   The upcoming release of Porfdist is using a boost in many places, and
the already released CBCAnalyzer is also boost powerd. It might be nice
to have them mentioned on the "Who is using Boost" page.

Name: CBCanaylzer
Developed by: Department of Bioinformatics, at the University of Wuerzburg
CBCAnalyzer (CBC = compensatory base change) is a tool to create ``small''
phylogenetic trees from sequence alignments. To measure the distance of sequences
the compensatory base changes are detected and counted. The bionj
algorithm is then used to construct a tree. CBCAnalyzer is available on
Windows, Linux and partly works on MacOSX.

 Program Options - creates really nice output, and is both easy to extend and simple to handle.
 Spirit - Saved a lot of my time, and makes the vast amount of biological file formats simple to support,

Name: Profdist
Developed by: Department of Bioinformatics, at the University of Wuerzburg
Profdist is a tool for the construction of large phylogenetic trees based on
profile distances. The input alignment data gets extended by random
picking of rows, and a clustering technique is used to create profiles
of the most frequent subtrees. The iterative approach allows working on
large datasets. Currently the application is very limited by the quality of
wxWidgets, and only available for Windows and Linux.
