    Biodevelopers Discussion List Now Open at Bioinformatics.Org
    Submitted by Joe Landman; posted on Thursday, April 11, 2002 (3 comments)

    The following is a description of the Biodevelopers list, recently formed and hosted at Bioinformatics.Org.

    Welcome to the biodevelopers mailing list. This list, hosted by Bioinformatics.Org, is devoted to a discussion of all aspects of bioinformatics application development from algorithm design to development methodologies. It is intended for all developers of bioinformatics software, from novice through expert programmers. Consider this to be a forum for an open and honest dialog with a large distributed group of colleagues. Much like an ongoing discussion at a conference, in-between talks, this forum is devoted to helping foster the communication and active dialog about topics of interest to the greater developer community.

    Potential topics for discussion would be any software related issue that may be of interest to a bionformatics developer. These might include the use of object technologies, architecture design, databases, scalable algorithm design, user interface considerations and so forth. We would like to discourage language wars, or similar discussions. The routine posting of promotional material by companies is discouraged although comments and discussions about development tools, for example, are welcomed. Beginners questions, assuming they are not covered in the FAQ, are also very welcome.

    If you have questions, please feel free to send email to one of the list maintainers: Martin Goodson (mgoodson[at] and Joe Landman (landman[at]

    metalife knowledgebase
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, September 09, 2002
    Dear Gentleman, metalife knowledgebase offers the user a ?single entry point? for research and analysis of available decentralized allocated data. metalife knowledgebase also increasingly integrates data that have been generated by means of own newly developed tools. for instance, by means of the text extraction tools and based on the metalife tmp (tmp = text minding process), data can be derived immediately from scientific publications and used for supplementation of annotations to protein entries or addition of new classes of information to the metalife knowledgebase. the metalife knowledgebase is based on standard components ( pc, sql server 2000). it contains the majority of public accessible molecular biological data as well as indices to the primary data collections, serves as a central in-/output memory for the metalife tools and applications, saves information and knowledge references that are created by highly developed metalife technologies, allows the easy integration of proprietary data and applications, compatible with internet technology. the metalife knowledgebase forms the fundament of our progressive bio-informatics package. best regards your Metateam
    metalife explorer
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, September 09, 2002
    Dear Gentleman, In april 2002 the metalife team released the first version of the metalife explorer. with metalife explorer the next central metalife tool is implemented in a first version. It enables the user to access the content of metalife knowledgebase thoroughly. All integrated data sources are exploited with one query. Simple queries as well as advanced queries are possible. The user does not need to know the internal data structures of the different data sources. Cross database queries are possible. A compact yet comprehensive dossier about a gene or a protein can be obtained with a single query. Data obtained from structured databases stand in line with text extracted data. Among others, information of the dossiers includes sequences, pathways, publications, patents and relation to diseases. metalife explorer serves as a core part of the metalife working environment. best regards your Metateam
    metalife finder
    Submitted by Nobody; posted on Monday, September 09, 2002
    Dear Gentleman, Metalife finder offers, as an alternative to the user interface of metalife explorer, a classic search method. The tool is designed for those users who would purposefully like to access separate primaty data collections. By integrating the metalife working environment, an interface was created to all other applications. The most important product features are: ? parser based user interface ? classic access to separate data collections ? based on the metalife knowledgebase ? possible inquiries about multiple databases and data categories ? integrated in the metalife working environment best regards, your metateam
