The Tools Platform helps communities find, register and benchmark software tools. These tools help researchers access, analyse and integrate biological data, and so drive scientific discovery across the life sciences.
We maintain information standards for these tools, and produce, adopt and promote best practices for their development. We also:
*connect tools and data services
*link tools to training materials
*make it easy to download, deploy, and benchmark tools for performance
*put tools in the context of the common workflows in bioinformatics, including container technologies and Galaxy.
