What is new for Debian-Med in Etch ?

Debian-Med is a "Custom Debian Distribution" with the aim to develop Debian into an operating system that is particularly well fit for the requirements for medical practice and research.

The goal of Debian-Med is a complete system for all tasks in medical care which is built completely on free software.

The Debian-Med project strenghtened its current three main areas of activity: imaging, bioinformatics, and medical practice.
But of course, it also benefits of all the other improvements of Debian etch, such as increased security with signed packages, a new way of exploring the 18,000 available packages - the Debtags, or the official support of the amd64 architecture.

More possibilities for neuroscience research

Debian-Med offers tools to work with medical imaging data obtained from various techniques such as magnetic resonance (MRI) or computer tomography (CT) for instance. These tools are useful to pre-clinical research in neuroscience as well and with the release of etch, Debian-Med expanded its support with the addition of the NIfTI library, which is particularly focused on magnetic imaging. Other areas of neuroscience are also being covered, such as experimental psychology with packages for the Python Experiment-Programming Library.

Increased support of bioinformatics and molecular biology

The number of programs available for multiple sequence alignment in Debian-Med has more than doubled, giving a broad choice of algorithms.Thanks to a collaboration with the upstream author of Seaview, we could move this alignment editor in the main Debian archive. We also expanded the support for phylogenetic analysis by adding to our collection TreeView X, a viewer which can export in SVG format. Molecular biologists will find a new primer design program in Debian-Med, Primer3, and a new version of perlprimer. These two programs nicely complement as the latter a graphical user interface and the former is well suited for high-throughput design.

First release with the GNUmed client

GNUmed is an electronic medical record management system. Using it with Debian-Med, you will benefit from the robustness of the package dependencies in Debian. Just install the gnumed-client package (or the med-practice metapackage), and the system will take care of adding whatever else you need: HTML browser, spellchecker, scanner support ... --
