CardioVINEdb: a data warehouse approach for integration of life science data in cardiovascular diseases

J Integr Bioinform. 2010 Jun 28;7(1):142. doi: 10.2390/biecoll-jib-2010-142.


One of the major challenges in bioinfomatics is to integrate and manage data from different sources as well as experimental microarray data and present them in a user-friendly format. Therefore, we present CardioVINEdb, a data warehouse approach developed to interact with and explore life science data. The data warehouse architecture provides a platform independent web interface that can be used with any common web browser. A monitor component controls and updates the data from the different sources to guarantee up-todateness. In addition, the system provides a "static" and "dynamic" visualization component for interactive graphical exploration of the data.
