The bioinformatics home for fast, well-documented, and user-friendly tools

Welcome to CrocoTools! We provide bioinformatics webservers and standalone software to analyze the sequence, structure, and function of the molecules of life. We are committed to providing high-quality, user-friendly, computationally efficient bioinformatics tools, taking upon ourselves the challenge of making scientific software accessible to our peers across various fields of life and medical sciences.

The CrocoPhilosophy combines efficiency with enjoyable user experience. This means:

  • improving performance by improving design (algorithms and implementation), not by requiring additional resources;
  • facilitating much faster or entirely novel analyses;
  • keeping things simple for new users while allowing sufficient flexibility for expert users

We hope you enjoy using CrocoTools in your research. If you want more CrocoPhilosophy in your life, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
