Data Privacy on BioLib: By default, applications on BioLib run in a sand-boxed environment client-side. While using
applications on BioLib looks and feels like using a web-server, it is very different in that by default the code is sent
to the end-user's computer where the data is analyzed (on a traditional web-server the data is sent to the server where
it is analyzed). Hence, no data can leave the user's machine without their express permission.
Calling Applications from Script: Most often, users run BioLib applications directly from the browser using the
graphical UI. However, it is also possible to call BioLib applications from the command-line or a script.
Common Issues: When running BioLib applications through the browser, make sure to use an up-to-date version of
either Google Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft Edge. It is recommended to use a machine with at least 4GB RAM.
