PosMed (http://omicspace.riken.jp/) prioritizes candidate genes for positional cloning by employing our original database search engine GRASE, which uses an inferential process similar to an artificial neural network comprising documental neurons (or 'documentrons') that represent each document contained in databases such as MEDLINE and OMIM. Given a(More)
SUMMARY In this paper we describe collaborative constraint functional logic programming and the system called Open CFLP that supports this programming paradigm. The system solves equations by collaboration of various equational constraint solvers. The solvers include higher-order lazy narrowing cal-culi that serve as the interpreter of higher-order(More)
We report a Japanese family carrying a T666M missense mutation of CACNA1A. Affected members demonstrated a strikingly wide clinical spectrum including migraine, hemiplegia, coma, and progressive cerebellar ataxia. Despite such variability of the clinical features, they demonstrated similar magnetic resonance imaging findings demonstrating cerebellar atrophy(More)
UNLABELLED OmicBrowse is a browser to explore multiple datasets coordinated in the multidimensional omic space integrating omics knowledge ranging from genomes to phenomes and connecting evolutional correspondences among multiple species. OmicBrowse integrates multiple data servers into a single omic space through secure peer-to-peer server communications,(More)
MOTIVATION Statistical analysis of links on the Semantic Web is important for various evaluation purposes such as quantifying an individual's scientific research output based on citation links. SPARQL has been proposed as a standardized query language for the Semantic Web and is intuitively understandable; however, it does not adequately support statistical(More)
The RIKEN integrated database of mammals (http://scinets.org/db/mammal) is the official undertaking to integrate its mammalian databases produced from multiple large-scale programs that have been promoted by the institute. The database integrates not only RIKEN's original databases, such as FANTOM, the ENU mutagenesis program, the RIKEN Cerebellar(More)
Recent advances in technologies for observing high-resolution genomic activities, such as whole-genome tiling arrays and high-throughput sequencers, provide detailed information for understanding genome functions. However, the functions of 50% of known Arabidopsis thaliana genes remain unknown or are annotated only on the basis of static analyses such as(More)
Database integration of a wide variety of life-science data is an important issue for comprehensive data analysis. Since Semantic Web technologies, such as Resource Description Framework (RDF), are expected to provide efficient data integration technologies, many life-science databases are published in RDF with SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language(More)
Global cloud frameworks for bioinformatics research databases become huge and heterogeneous; solutions face various diametric challenges comprising cross-integration, retrieval, security and openness. To address this, as of March 2011 organizations including RIKEN published 192 mammalian, plant and protein life sciences databases having 8.2 million data(More)
