Project ID: QLRI-CT-2001-00006
Financé au titre de: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Pays: Germany

First project using BioMoby as an interoperability technology, thus representing an important case demonstrating a distributed solution towards data integration

BioMoby is a web service technology with the long-term goal to provide a simple and extensible platform offering access to all kinds of on-line databases and analytical tools in a fully automated and interoperable way.

PlaNet was the first project using BioMoby as an integration technology showing that BioMoby fulfills the requirements for easy integration.

The decision to use BioMoby was important to both projects and massively improved the development of BioMoby, which now is a mature system and can easily be used by other groups.

Several projects followed the Planet example and use the BioMoby technology to achieve their goals. It can be expected that more groups will follow.

This leads to the popping-up of hundreds of BioMoby web-services giving access to almost all kinds of analytical tools and on-line databases and all of which are extremely interoperable and can be connected to powerful workflows.
