Biocuration and Data Resources

“Integration, Annotation and Analysis Services for Biomedical Data”

To share and fully utilize biomedical data, it needs to be integrated with other data and annotated with metadata using standard terminologies and methods. Similarly biological objects such as genes, proteins, pathways, drug interactions, and treatments need to be culled from the literature and organized by their functions and interactions - even the best-automated methods need quality training sets. Only organized data informs.
