Management and analysis of heterogeneous biological data : how the web can help
The World Wide Web has revolutionized how researchers from various disciplines collaborate over long distances. This is nowhere more important than in the Life Sciences, where interdisciplinary approaches are becoming increasingly powerful as a driver of both integration and discovery. In this talk I will focus on new data management solutions for the Life Sciences field, showing the desired key features of a web-based data management system. Examples of Web 2.0 applications data standards and semantic web projects in Life Sciences will be presented.
