Unipro UGENE is a multiplatform open-source software with the main
goal of assisting molecular biologists without much expertise in
bioinformatics to manage, analyze and visualize their data.

UGENE integrates widely used bioinformatics tools within a common user
interface. The toolkit supports multiple biological data formats and
allows the retrieval of data from remote data sources. It provides
visualization modules for biological objects such as:

- annotated genome sequences
- Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) assembly data
- multiple sequence alignments
- phylogenetic trees
- 3D structures

Most of the integrated algorithms are tuned for maximum performance by
the usage of multithreading and special processor instructions. UGENE
includes a visual environment for creating reusable workflows that can
be launched on local resources or in a High Performance Computing
(HPC) environment. UGENE is written in C++ using the Qt framework. The
built-in plugin system and structured UGENE API make it possible to
extend the toolkit with new functionality.

UGENE can use and drive a number of external tools, providing a nice
and unified GUI. These are not needed at build time, but are highly
recommended for the complete (and extended) functionality of the
program. Almost all of them can be found at

- bedtools (A powerful toolset for genome arithmetic)
- bowtie (A short read aligner of DNA sequences)
- bowtie2 (A tool for aligning sequencing reads)
- bwa (Burrows-Wheeler Aligner)
- cap3 (CAP3: A DNA sequence assembly program)
- cistrome-CEAS (CEAS: Cis-regulatory Element Annotation System)
- cistrome-MACS (MACS: Model-based Analysis of ChIP-Seq)
- clustalo (Clustal Omega)
- clustalw (Multiple Sequence Alignment)
- cufflinks (A reference-guided assembler for RNA-Seq experiments)
- cutadapt (Trim adapters from high-throughput sequencing reads)
- fastqc (A quality control tool for high throughput sequence data)
- ncbi-blast (BLAST: Basic Local Alignment Search Tool)
- ncbi-blast-plus (BLAST+ Command Line Applications)
- PhyML (Phylogenetic estimation using Maximum Likelihood)
- samtools (Sequence Alignment/Map Tools)
- snpEff (Genetic variant annotation and effect prediction toolbox)
- spades (SPAdes Genome Assembler)
- spidey (mRNA-to-genomic alignment)
- t_coffee (A multiple sequence alignment program)
- tabix (Generic indexer for TAB-delimited genome position files )
- tophat (Splice junction mapper for RNA-Seq reads)
- vcftools (A program package designed for working with VCF files)
