To achieve the integration of biological data available on the World Wide Web and maintained in diverse sources such as GDB, Genbank or Acedb, we have developed a software called Jade. Jade allows programmers to create analytic tools and graphical user interfaces for one or more existing bioinformatics data sources. These tools can then be interchanged, compared and reused without making modifications in the data sources themselves. The system is implemented in the Java programming language and will run equally well on Macintosh, Windows or Unix workstations. Jade is free and can be used immediately by all interested parties.
