DisEMBL licenses

In terms of licences it is important to distinguish between the web version and the pipeline version as they are covered by different licenses.

The web service running at EMBL can be accessed freely by both academia and industry. If, however, you wish to have the DisEMBL web server running locally, you will be required to sign a Material Transfer Agreement. This agreement does not cost any money for academic instutions.

The pipe-line interface described above is released under the GNU Public License (GPL). This means that it is freely available as source code for both academia and industry. If you are want to include DisEMBL in a commercial software package, DisEMBL can also be obtained under a commercial license from us.
