Project Details


The objective of the project is to develop a web-based open knowledge base for the representation, extraction and processing of biochemical nets. The responsibility of the LIBD is focused on the design and evolution of the underlying database. In particularly, the BioMaze system includes components to keep, in a semi-automated way, the schemas, the data, the documentation and the OO API of the database synchronized with the conceptual evolution of the application domain. The documentation relies on OWL, so that a comprehensive OWL engineering toolset has been developed (transformation, generation, extraction, reverse engineering, validation). All the tools are components of DB-MAIN.
