- The umbrella organization for the Bio* projects is the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (O|B|F). O|B|F is governed by a Board of Directors, organizes the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) on an annual basis since 2001, and provides hardware and system administration for the member projects.
The individual member projects are BioPerl, Biojava, Biopython, Bioruby, and BioSQL. Except for the latter, which provides a generic schema for certain life science data types, each of these projects represents the largest and most widely used toolkit in its language in the life sciences.
