Abstract

Recent years have seen an explosion in the amount of available biological data. More and more genomes are being sequenced and annotated, and protein and gene interaction data are accumulating. Biological databases have been invaluable for managing these data and for making them accessible. Depending on the data that they contain, the databases fulfil different functions. But, although they are architecturally similar, so far their integration has proved problematic.
