Reference management software tools | Information retrieval
Bibliographic management tools have been widely used by researchers to store, organize, and manage their references for research papers, theses, dissertations, journal articles, and other publications. There are a number of reference management tools available. In order for users to decide which tool is best for their needs, it is important to know each tool's strengths and weaknesses.
Contains a comprehensive set of free development tools and libraries for bioinformatics and molecular biology, written in the Ruby programming language.
