The bioLegato concept

Figure 1 - bioLegato main window and a popup menu for launching the FEATURES program. In this prototype, the canvas pane is empty.

Object-Oriented Design

blMenuSpecs - Ontology of methods for a given data type

blMenuBar - Top-level of method ontology ie. a hierarchical menu

blMenu - Lets user set parameters for a method and to launch the method, using the currently-selected data as input.

blObject - Represents the collection of data objects currently read in.

blCanvas - Displays the current state of the blObject, and allows user select subsets of the data and to manipulate the data.

A consistent, generic data browser

In principle, bioLegato should be able to work with almost any kind of data, and use almost any kind of method, anywhere.
