As you will have seen, I'm focusing on the NCBI BLAST+
wrappers at the moment, but wrapping the command line
versions of TMHMM v2.0 and SignalP v3.0 would probably
be next on my list of things to do in Galaxy.
The TMHMM v2.0 and SignalP v3.0 tools are free to
download and use for academics, but commercial or
other users would need to negiotiate a license:
There is nothing to stop me writing and sharing wrappers
for the tools, and installing and using TMHMM v2.0 and
SignalP v3.0 on a local Galaxy server for academic use.
However, I guess their licence would prevent TMHMM
v2.0 and SignalP v3.0 being included in the "public"
Galaxy server? One option might be to ask CBS if
they would allow Penn State University to make these
tools available via their public Galaxy server.
Has this issue of "academic only" licences come up
before for Galaxy wrapped tools?
Alternatively I might be able to write wrappers for the
CBS hosted TMHMM and SignalP webservice which
appears to be free to use by anyone, but that seems
less robust and they may be unhappy with the likely
