Researchers typically need to combine Bioinformatics processes to perform larger, more complex tasks, expressed as workflows. However, there is a strong indication from users that running complex workflows is an addition burden that must be alleviated. Motivated by this observation, this paper first introduces an ontology that defines classes and instances(More)
There exists many molecular biology databases, also known as Genome Databases, that need to be integrated together with all related applications and other data sources. This work proposes the use of an object-oriented framework for genome data access and manipulations. The framework approach may be an interesting solution in this context due to the(More)
Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus Pal5 is an endophytic diazotrophic bacterium that lives in association with sugarcane plants. It has important biotechnological features such as nitrogen fixation, plant growth promotion, sugar metabolism pathways, secretion of organic acids, synthesis of auxin and the occurrence of bacteriocins. Gluconacetobacter(More)
Abstract: Molecular biology data are placed in different databases, repositories and flat files, usually distributed over the web. Distinct data models with schemas that are often changing implement these heterogeneous data sources. It is very important to gather information about these data sources, including schemas and ontology. The usual approach to(More)
One of the most important tasks of genome projects is the interpretation of experimental data in order to derive biological knowledge from the data. To achieve this goal, researchers typically search external data sources, execute analysis programs on the sequences, analyze previous annotations and add new annotations to register their interpretation of the(More)
