Abstract

This paper presents a novel bioinformatics data warehouse software kit that integrates biological information from multiple public life science data sources into a local database management system. It stands out from other approaches by providing up-to-date integrated knowledge, platform and database independence as well as high usability and customization. This open source software can be used as a general infrastructure for integrative bioinformatics research and development. The advantages of the approach are realized by using a Java-based system architecture and object-relational mapping (ORM) technology. Finally, a practical application of the system is presented within the emerging area of medical bioinformatics to show the usefulness of the approach. The BioDWH data warehouse software is available for the scientific community at http://sourceforge.net/projects/biodwh/.
