BIOINFORMATICS TOOLS CATEGORIZER AND ASSESSMENT OF UNIVERSAL RESOURCE LOCATOR DECAY
INTRODUCTION AND MOTIVATION
Bioinformatics could be defined as a scientific field that combines both the field of biology and computer science. Software tools for analysis of molecular biology data that are available on the Internet are extremely essential for conducting bioinformatics research . Since 2003, the journal Nucleic Acid Research has successfully published issues dedicated to web-based software resources for analysis of molecular biology data . Another journal called Bioinformatics has its main focus on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology . Furthermore the journal provides a forum for the exchange of information in the fields of computational molecular biology and post-genome bioinformatics, with emphasis on the documentation of new algorithms and databases that allows the progress of bioinformatics and biomedical research in a significant manner . The abstract of published reports in Bioinformatics include a section on the availability of the software tools. However, unlike the NAR web-server abstracts that have a Bioinformatics Links Directory , Bioinformatics does have a directory of software tools published in the journal. The Bioinformatics Tools Categorizer is a web-based resource that organizes the tools published in Bioinformatics and also assesses the persistence of the Universal Resource Locator (URL) associated with the tools. The Bioinformatics Tools Categorizer is available from 2005 for all issues except for Conference Proceedings.
CATEGORIES OF BIOINFORMATICS ARTICLES
There are four major categories of articles published in Bioinformatics: Discovery Note, Original Papers, Application Note and Erratum. These main categories are further broken into application areas such as genome analysis, sequence analysis, phylogenetics, structural bioinformatics, gene expression, genetics and population analysis, systems biology, data and text mining and database and ontology.
