eBioTools

If you use a Mac and you need to perform basic bioinformatics on your DNA/RNA sequences (and proteins too), here is a collection of tools (Boost, Clustal W, PHYLIP, EMBOSS, gd, Glimmer, HMMER, INFERNAL, Jmol, Kalign, Kaptain, MrBayes, MRS, MUSCLE, NCBI Tools, NEdit, Primer3, sim4, soap4r, Staden, T-COFFEE, ViennaRNA) you can use for free:
http://www.ebioinformatics.org/index.html
Download the eBioTools .zip file, drag it to your Applications folder, and then install eBioTools by double-clicking the .zip file (you can also uncompress the .zip first before moving the .pkg file to the Applications folder).
Once eBioTools is installed, download and install eBioX. This software provides a nice graphical interphase to access all these programs.

 I have installed the

 I have installed the ebiotools on my macbook pro, but somehow I cannot see where it is installed. It did mention that it would not be visible in the finder and you have to run the included programmes from the command line in the terminal programme. Which i dont seem to understand. I cant find the location. I think this programme is a bit confusing for me. I want it off my laptop, can someone please advise how to access the programme in the first instance and then how to uninstall it..

Any help will be greatly appreciated

You should be able to simply search for "ebiotools" in your computer and then delete any file with that term in it.
