The ARB software is a graphically oriented package comprising various tools
for sequence database handling and data analysis. A central database of
processed (aligned) sequences and any type of additional data linked to the
respective sequence entries is structured according to phylogeny or other
user defined criteria.
The ARB project (latin, "arbor"=tree) is a joint initiative of the Lehrstuhl
fuer Mikrobiologie and the
Lehrstuhl fuer Rechnertechnik und Rechnerorganisation of the Technical University
of Munich.
This package contains the dynamic libraries which are used by arb.
