Overview

The Integrated Database Project aims to add functions in order to support the drafting of a national strategy determined by the government, and to direct its execution with regard to the establishment of databases for fields in the life sciences. As well as reappraising existing efforts, the project supports a portal site on the Internet, and works to improve the ease of use and integration of Japan's life sciences databases. In this way, it promotes the wider utilization of these resources by the general public and others.



At KIT, our primary aim is to integrate ProNIT (Thermodynamic Database for Protein-Nucleic Acid Interactions) and ProTherm (Thermodynamic Database for Proteins and Mutants) with other biological databases in Japan. ProNIT and ProTherm databases will be connected to this centralized system through an indexed flat file provided by us. This process will be synchronized with the database updates.

The secondary aim is to develop ProNIT and ProTherm data in an XML format to exchange data with PDB japan. The ProNIT and ProTherm data will be provided both in the HTML version and in the XML format to the users and also to other collaborating databases for data sharing.

We also plan to develop ontology for thermodynamic data of biomolecules and interactions, to facilitate the data integration.
