Abstract:

A need exists for dissemination of information on the uses of computers in the life sciences. This report attempts to provide the information necessary to locate and request programs or program descriptions and listings. Typical applications in the life sciences are described for general programs on information retrieval, cross-tabulation of data, tests of statistical hypotheses, regression analysis, multivariate analysis, time series analysis, analysis of variance and covariance, mathematical diagnosis, linear programming, simulation, numerical techniques, and matrix algebra. In addition to these general purpose programs, many special purpose programs exist which are applicable within the gamut of research problems. Some specific examples are finding interatomic distances and angles, blood volume analysis, cardiac arrythmia analysis, etc. The Key-word-in-Context KWIC - Index of life sciences computer programs consisting of 1 the Key-Word Index, 2 Author Index, and 3 Code-Name Index is given in the final section of the report.
