Meta router

We have developed MetaRouter, an application intended for laboratories working in biodegradation and bioremediation which need to maintain and consult public and private data, linked internally and with external databases, and to extract new information from it.

Among the data-mining features, a program is included for locating bio-degradative pathways for chemical compounds according to a given set of constraints and requirements. The integration of biodegradation information with the corresponding protein and genome data provides a suitable framework for studying the global properties of the bioremediation network. The system can be accessed and administrated through a web. MetaRouter is a system for maintaining heterogeneous information related with bioremediation and biodegradation in a framework that allows its updating, query, modification and mining.

The core of the system is a relational database where the information on chemical compounds, reactions, enzymes and organisms is stored in an integrated framework. MetaRouter allows not only to interactively consult the database but also to formulate new questions with associated programs that run on top of the database.
