Description:

SeWeR is an integrated potal to common web-based services in bioinformatics

Strengths:

The main strength is its good looking. Obvious the webmaster has strong background in webdesign and usage of Java, reflected by its stylish title and its cross-browser DHTML and being written entirely in Javascript.

Weaknesses:

The website is weak in respect of its bioinformatics. In the Alignment program, it only has two: clustalW and BlockMaker; in the tools for sequence only has two: Readseq and Cap. It doesnot have enough content to be a very useful potal.

Not very comprehensive
