Abstract

As the number of online biomedical data sources increases, so too do the number of ways to access such data. The research described herein focuses on creating a data access system that provides bi-directional translation and mapping of data between heterogeneous databases and a mediated schema. Semantic mapping rules stored in a knowledge base are used by our generalized software to convert XML query results obtained from each data source to a common schema representing a single ontology. We apply this approach to the domain of online genetic databases, demonstrating the system's scalability and integratability.
