Debian Med support for typesetting and publishing

This metapackage will install Debian packages that might be helpful for typesetting and publishing in medical care and structural biology.


For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Med to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Med mailing list

interactive system for three-dimensional vector graphics
Versions of package king

KiNG (Kinemage, Next Generation) is an interactive system for three-dimensional vector graphics. It supports a set of graphics primitives that make it suitable for many types of graphs, plots, and other illustrations; although its first use was to display macromolecular structures for biophysical research. KiNG builds on Mage, JavaMage, and the "kinemage" (kinetic image) concept to deliver a full-featured Java application with a user-friendly interface and integrated editing features. The KiNG jar file can be used within a web page as a Java applet or Java object to promote easy access to kinemages or coordinate files from a web browser.

Much-augmented BibTeX replacement for BibLaTeX users
Versions of package biber
Popcon: 243 users (264 upd.)*
Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

The biblatex package by Philipp Lehman is becoming the definitive citation management tool for LaTeX users. Biblatex has relied on the venerable BibTeX program only for sorting and generating a very generic .bbl file without any formatting instruction. Everything else is taken care of by biblatex, which provides a powerful and flexible macro interface for authors of citation styles.

Biber offers a large superset of BibTeX functionality for BibLaTeX users. In addition it offers full UTF-8 (Unicode 6.0) capabilities, fully customisable sorting, output to GraphViz to help visualise complex crossrefs, support for remote data sources, structural validation of the data against the (customisable) data model, and a lot more.

Bibus is a bibliographic database which has been developed with LibreOffice/ in mind. It can directly insert citations and format the bibliographic index in an open Writer document. The main features are

  • hierarchical organization of the references with user-defined keys
  • designed for multiuser-environments (share databases between users)
  • a search engine supporting live queries
  • on-line PubMed access
