MATLAB-MathWorks is a high-level language and interactive environment used by engineers and scientists worldwide that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages. MATLAB applications are amenable to numerical computation with features such as mathematical functions for linear algebra, statistics, Fourier analysis, filtering, optimization, numerical integration and solving ordinary differential equations. MATLAB provides built-in graphics for data visualization, tools for creating custom plots and functions for integrating MATLAB based algorithms with external applications and languages such as C, Java, .NET and Microsoft Excel.

MATLAB is available for free on the Research Pod computers in Becker Medical Library through the Washington University’s Campus-wide License for Mathworks. The MATLAB toolboxes installed on the Research Pod computers are listed below:

MATLAB Version 9.5 (R2018b)
Bioinformatics Toolbox Version 4.11 (R2018b)
Curve Fitting Toolbox Version 3.5.8 (R2018b)
Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox Version 11.4 (R2018b)
