EMBOSS is "The European Molecular Biology Open Software Suite". 

EMBOSS is a free Open Source software analysis package specially
developed for the needs of the molecular biology (e.g. EMBnet) user
community. The software automatically copes with data in a variety of
formats and even allows transparent retrieval of sequence data from
the web. Also, as extensive libraries are provided with the package,
it is a platform to allow other scientists to develop and release
software in true open source spirit. EMBOSS also integrates a range of
currently available packages and tools for sequence analysis into a
seamless whole. EMBOSS breaks the historical trend towards commercial
software packages.
