The European Molecular Biology Open Software Suite (EMBOSS) is a
comprehensive set (about 100) of open source tools for genetic sequence
analysis.  EMBOSS is produced by the European Molecular Biology Network
(EMBnet - http://www.embnet.org/).
All EMBOSS tools are all built around the same set of core libraries - AJAX
and NUCLEUS - and therefore share a unified user interface, have similar
"look and feel", and implement a uniform sequence addressing methodology.
The various components of EMBOSS are distributed under the GPL, except the
core libraries which are under the LGPL.
EMBASSY packages are third party applications which have been integrated with
the EMBOSS suite, but which are not included in the base EMBOSS distribution
for licensing or other reasons. The EMBASSY packages live in the
biology/embassy port.

This must be renamed to emboss.default and edited to suit your site
and requirements.
A .embossrc file in a user's home directory overrides settings in the
system-wide emboss.default.
Additional third party applications for EMBOSS can be installed from the
biology/embassy port. Remember, though that if you installed EMBOSS in a
PREFIX other than the default, you will have to install EMBASSY into this
same PREFIX.
