There is a new paper in the journal Bioinformatics. This is the title of that paper:
CoNtRol: an open source framework for the analysis of chemical reaction networks
Now people will know that I have no stomach for bogus bioinformatics acronyms and initialisms, so is CoNtRol worthy of a JABBA award? Well I can't give it such an award because CoNtRol is not an acronym or an initialism. At least I don't think it is.
The abstract describes CoNtRol as a web-based framework for analysis of chemical reaction networks (CRNs). So even though the capitalized letters in CoNtRol give you CNR, maybe it's really all about CRNs???
The CoNtRol website makes things a little more confusing by starting their introduction with the text: CoNtRol (CRN tool) is a web application. Are you now thinking what I'm thinking? Is CoNtRol the world's first bioinformatics software based on an anagram (CoNtRol = CRN tool)? If this isn't the reason, then I can only assume that someone decided to just randomly capitalize various letters in the name.
Whatever the reason for the name, the more practical issue is that these tools can often be hard to find with web search engines. It doesn't show up on the first page of Google results if you search for control bioinformatics web app. Nor does it show up if you search for control chemical network app. There is something to be said for giving software novel names.
