Abstract A CORBA and XML Based Gene Expression Database

By Y. Yang, A. Waterhouse D. Davidson and R. A. Baldock

Abstract

The Mouse Atlas programme aims to produce a bioinformatics framework to study gene expression patterns and lineage information for mouse development. This paper shows the client-server architecture of the gene expression databases, explains the advantages of using CORBA IDL to isolate the user interface from an application database and discusses the XML database. The results demonstrate that CORBA provides a natural mechanism for user interface separation through IDL and that XML is highly suited to the provision of structured and readable annotations for gene expression patterns
