There are two classifications of BioCoRE use. The overwhelming majority of people will be interested in accessing BioCoRE as a collaborative environment. It is possible, however, to install your own BioCoRE server, which can then be used as a local collaborative environment.
Accessing BioCoRE as a Collaborative Environment
BioCoRE is a web-based collaborative environment, so required installation is minimal. You essentially only need a web browser to access BioCoRE. However, we highly recommend a small amount of installation to enhance your BioCoRE experience.
- Java Web Start - (needed for: Control Panel via Java Web Start) Java Web Start is a utility that comes with the Java plugin for your browser that can be used by the Control Panel and is really quite nice. We have set up a page for installation of Java Web Start.
- VMD - (needed for: VMD pub/sync) BioCoRE's collaborative VMD feature relies on VMD being installed on your computer. For information on this, go to the VMD website.
