Thacker, Chelsea Specht, Charles Hughes, Jorge Soberon (KnowledgeVis, LLC, Maitland, FL, USA)Arbor is an open-source, web-based environment useful for many kinds of biological dataset analysis and research. Arbor is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and is under development to bring comparative methods in phylogenetics to a larger audience of biology researchers, faculty, and students. Arbor offers an advanced web interface, where algorithms in Python or R can be uploaded, edited, executed, combined into multi-step workflows, and shared with others. However, Arbor also offers Easy Mode interfaces, where individuals can drag & drop their data on the webpage and have a number of analyses run on their data immediately. Finally, data in Arbor is available through an authenticated REST API. The first native application to take advantage of Arbor’s API is PhyloPen, a multitouch and pen-enabled phylogenetic tree exploration interface. We believe the code editing, dataset hosting, and workflow computations of Arbor can also be utilized across a broad class of biological research and visualization problems. Please get in touch with us to see if Arbor can assist with your dataset analysis.
