Debian Med Project
Help us to see Debian used by medical practitioners and biomedical researchers! Join us on the Alioth page.
Summary
A Debian Pure Blend is a Debian internal project which assembles a set of packages that might help users to solve certain tasks of their work. This page should be helpful to track down the bugs of packages that are interesting for the debian-med project to enable developers a quick overview about possible problems.

Bugs page

This is a list of metapackages. The links are leading to the respective bugs page.

Biology - Debian Med bioinformatics packages (822*)
This metapackage will install Debian packages for use in molecular biology, structural biology and other biological sciences.
Biology development - Debian Med packages for development of bioinformatics applications (324*)
This metapackage will install Debian packages which might be helpful for development of applications for biological research.
Next generation sequencing - Debian Med bioinformatics applications usable in Next Generation Sequencing (129*)
It aims at gettting packages which specializes in alignment of sequences produced by next generation sequencing.
Phylogeny - Debian Med phylogeny packages (66*)
This lists Debian packages related to phylogeny for use in life sciences. The purpose of this compilation of packages is to have a handy subset of from the med-bio metapackage which contains a lot more than only phylogeny related software.
Cloud - Debian Med bioinformatics applications usable in cloud computing (336*)
This metapackage will install Debian packages related to molecular biology, structural biology and bioinformatics for use in life sciences, that do not depend on graphical toolkits and therefore can fit on system images for use in cloud computing clusters, where space can be limited.
Content management - Debian Med content management systems (0*)
Here you can find software that is useful to build a content management system for medical care.
Medical data - Debian Med drug databases (9*)
This metapackage will install free drug databases and related applications. The database can be accessed by any EMR using the application.
Dental - Debian Med packages related to dental practice (0*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for a collection of software which might be helpful for dentists to manage their practice.
Epidemiology - Debian Med epidemiology related packages (0*)
This metapackage will install tools that are useful in epidemiological research. Several packages making use of the GNU R data language for statistical investigation. It might be a good idea to read the paper "A short introduction to R for Epidemiology" at http://staff.pubhealth.ku.dk/%7Ebxc/Epi/R-intro.pdf
Hospital information systems - Debian Med suggestions for Hospital Information Systems (9*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for software and that could be useful ro run a Hospital Information System. While there is continuous work going on to package a ready to install system currently only preconditions are finished but hopefully helpful in hospitals anyway.
Imaging - Debian Med image processing and visualization packages (1053*)
This metapackage will install Debian packages which might be useful in medical image processing and visualization. . On one hand, it installs several packages supporting various image file formats and image management, like DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) which is the de-facto standard for medical image management, and NIFTI. On the other hand, it provides a variety of software packages that can be used for visualization and for image processing - either from a graphical user interface, the command line, or implemented in workflows.
Imaging development - Debian Med image processing and visualization packages development (1056*)
This metapackage will install Debian packages which might be useful for developing applications for medical image processing and visualization.
Laboratory - Debian Med suggestions for medical laboratories (0*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for software and that could be useful ro run a medical laboratory.
Oncology - Debian Med packages for oncology (15*)
This metapackage will install tools that are useful for radiation oncology.
Pharmacology - Debian Med packages for pharmaceutical research (9*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for a collection of software and documentation which is useful for pharmaceutical research.
Physics - Debian Med packages for medical physicists (180*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for a collection of software and documentation which is useful for medical physicists in radiation oncology, diagnostics imaging and related fields.
Practice - Debian Med packages for practice management (9*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for a collection of software which might be helpful for practitioners to manage their practice.
Psychology - Debian Med packages for psychology (63*)
This metapackage contains dependencies for a collection of software which might be helpful for psychological research.
Rehabilitation - Debian Med packages for rehabilitation technologies (9*)
This metapackage will install tools that are useful for rehabilitation and therapy.
Research - Debian Med packages for medical research (0*)
This metapackage will install tools that are useful for medical research.
Statistics - Debian Med statistics (6*)
This metapackage will install packages which are helpful to do statistics with a special focus on tasks in medical care.
Tools - Debian Med several tools (204*)
This metapackage will install tools for several purposes in health care. Currently it contains some simple programs for Personal Health.
Typesetting - Debian Med support for typesetting and publishing (535*)
This metapackage will install Debian packages that might be helpful for typesetting and publishing in medical care and structural biology.
*To estimate the overall status of the packages in the dependencies of a metapackage a weighted severity is calculated. Done bugs are ignored and bugs in dependent and recommended packages are weighted by factor three compared to suggested packages. Release critical bugs have a much larger weight than important, while the contribution of normal bugs is even smaller and minor bugs have a very small weight. Wishlist bugs are ignored in this calculation. The resulting sum is compared to some boundaries to find a verbal form. The actual numbers need some adjustment to make real sense - this evaluation method is in testing phase.
The severities of bugs are weighted as follows:
