Created a visualization system utilizing UniProt Knowledgebase Swiss-Prot high quality manually annotated and non-redundant protein sequence database in text based data format for input and produced images using Cairo Graphics, which is an open source software written in C available to be redistributed under LGPL and MPL. Notably, Cairo is also used by GTK+. The work was called ProMog, an anagram for "Protein deMographics," because proteins were separated into four demographic groups, following medical literature, namely, nuclear, cytoplasmic, membrane, and extracellular. A tarball containing documentation, example run output, the source code, the thesis defense Open Office Impress pdf, and full write up pdf, a Makefile that simplifies build of the project on UNIX-like operating systems, and various performance studies is available for download here. Extract the file with the command "tar vxfz promog.tgz" on any UNIX-like command line. The software was performance tested on three Linux distributions, namely Gentoo, Ubuntu, and CentOS. Enrolled in two graduate level courses outside the computer science department, 1) Physical Oceanography and 2) Proteomic Techniques.
