The eBioKit, a stand-alone educational platform for bioinformatics.

The eBioKit is a stand-alone educational platform that hosts numerous tools and databases for bioinformatics research and allow training to take place in a controlled environment.

The eBioKit has been conceived to be a robust, user-friendly, and easy to manage teaching tool for courses and workshops, and has demonstrated to be a valuable resource for Institutions, Universities, Research Centers or Schools that would like to start teaching bioinformatics, or even provide bioinformatics capabilities for their groups.

The platform is based on open source and open access licenses that ensures its availability and distribution and can be ordered directly to the developer team. ..
