In order to align software resources to the needs of University of Minnesota researchers, MSI’s software working group actively reviews software at MSI. This will ensure that MSI offers software that covers a broad user base and functionality with improved focus. In the near term, we plan to make changes to the following software. Please provide feedback, if any, at the software request/feedback page.
Support for the following software will be discontinued soon at MSI.
- MASCOT (Search algorithm for Mass Spectral proteomics peaklists)
Due to its low usage last year, MSI does not plan to upgrade the support plan for this software after January 2014. Researchers can still use the existing version of the software with version 2.4 by accessing http://mascot.msi.umn.edu/mascot/ or Mascot Daemon on the SDVL PCs or Windows application server iron.msi.umn.edu
Support for the following software has been discontinued at MSI.
- ChemBioOffice (Software suite for chemists and biologists)
In order to better align MSI's software resources with the the needs of the High Performance Computing community, MSI will discontinue support for ChemBioOffice when the current license expires on August 31, 2012.The Chemistry department will continue provide support for ChemBio Office.
- MNova (NMR data processing tool)
Due to low usage, MSI is planning to discontinue support for MNova after June 8, 2012, and the software will not be usable after that date. If maintaining this software at MSI is important to you we would appreciate your feedback.
- PEAKS (de novo tool for proteomics)
Due to its low usage, MSI does not plan to upgrade the support plan for this software in 2012. Researchers can still use the existing software with version 5.3 on the Windows application servers copper.msi.umn.edu or iron.msi.umn.edu
- BlueFuse (microarray image analysis tool)
Due to its low usage, MSI does not plan to upgrade the support plan for this software in 2012. Researchers can still use the existing software on the Windows application server iron.msi.umn.edu or on Windows PCs in the MSI labs
