We know that many people use Oracle in Life Sciences. Per IDC, Oracle has a 75-80% market share in "Discovery". Oracle would like to help facilitate the exchange of customer code for accessing LS data e.g from GenBank, SwissProt, etc., but Oracle Legal concerns prevent us from posting customer's code on our web site.
Does anyone have any LS code that is based on Oracle that they are willing to share with others on say SourceForge.net? Is there any location where people are already posting this type of Oracle-based open source code?
Please go to SourceForge.net at http://sourceforge.net/projects/oraclelifesci/. Subscribe the mailing list or join the project development. To contribute codes you can chose one of the following:
1. If you would like to use CVS or you need shared development by others, you can use cvs in sourceForge.net to upload your code.
2. email your code to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also use other facilities that sourceForge has. It only take a couple hours in the beginning to known SourceForge.net.
We welcome codes in all programming langages (Java, Perl, PL/SQL, C, etc) for life science applications on Oracle Platform. Thank you.

There is no restriction on the types of applications to be posted and shared here as I understand the SourceForge Oracle Life Sciences folder. It is just a place for domain experts to post and exchange useful code that is somehow related to Oracle technology.
