Implementing the FuGE Object Model: a Systems Biology Data Portal and Integrator

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Allyson Lister, Dr Matthew Pocock, Dr Oliver Shaw, Professor Anil Wipat



The Centre for Integrated Systems Biology of Ageing and Nutrition has developed a Data Portal and Integrator (CISBAN DPI) that is based on the FuGE Object Model and which archives, stores, and retrieves raw high-throughput data. Until now, few published systems have successfully integrated multiple omics data types and information about experiments in a single database. The CISBAN DPI is the first published implementation of FuGE that includes a database back-end, expert and standard interfaces, and utilizes a Life Science Identifier (LSID) Resolution and Assigning service to identify objects and provide programmatic access to the database. Having a central data repository prevents deletion, loss, or accidental modification of primary data, while giving convenient access to the data for publication and analysis. It also provides a central location for storage of metadata for the high-throughput data sets, and will facilitate subsequent data integration strategies.
