8.1. Introduction

Web EMBOSS is a "featured" WWW interface for EMBOSS, which provides personal work spaces alongside the server. It has been developed by Marc Colet (Belgian EMBnet Node) and Martin Sarachu (Argentinean EMBnet Node) who, very sadly, has passed away. Part of the early code was taken from Luke McCarty's "EMBOSS GUI". The layout of the pages is the work of the Web design company ZB22.

It is released under the GNU General Public License and can be downloaded from SourceForge (http://wemboss.open-bio.org/). To use it you only need a WWW client with support for PNG, JavaScript and "cookies"; it has been tested, and works well with Mozilla, MS Internet Explorer and Opera.
