Software by BIIT
Public web services
These are the bioinformatics tools and databases developed in the BIIT research group in Tartu, Estonia. Most of the tools have public free web access interfaces. For others we are currently developing such interfaces. More tools and databases are on the way... Interested? Please contact and give feedback.
Databases and integrated atlases

Quretec Data Management Platform.
- Information retrieval related algorithms and data structures
- Search of Russian words in latin alphabet (Estonian); old Estonian words; etc based on universal edit distance engine
- Search of English words based on pronunciation (in Estonian)
- Very fast approximate regular expression matching using shift-OR based automaton matching
- Expression Profiler tools (@EBI)
and new Expression Profiler: Next Generation (collaboration with the EBI)
Note - since EBI discontinued the maintenance of Expression Profiler, please let me know who would be interested to use tha version? We will install it at our BIIT servers then. Please contact Jaak Vilo.
