Programmers and developers in bioscience now have access to the first version of MBF, part of the Microsoft Biology Initiative. With this platform, Microsoft Research is bringing new technology and tools to the area of bioinformatics and biology, empowering scientists with the resources needed to advance their research. This programming-language-neutral bioinformatics toolkit built as an extension to the Microsoft .NET Framework serves as a library of commonly used bioinformatics functions.  MBF implements a range of parsers for common bioinformatics file formats; a range of algorithms for manipulating DNA, RNA and protein sequences; and a set of connectors to biological Web services such as National Center for Biotechnology Information BLAST.

"Biologists face a number of issues today, such as detecting correlations between human genome sequencing or identifying the likelihood for a patient to develop a certain disease," said Tony Hey, corporate vice president of Microsoft External Research.  "The MBF aims to provide healthcare research facilities with the tools needed to help scientists advance their research and ensure data accuracy."

Several universities and companies are already using MBF as a foundation for a wide range of experimental tools that could enable scientists and clinicians with the technologies needed to make critical advancements in healthcare.
