Applying Agents to Bioinformatics in GeneWeaver
Recent years have seen dramatic and sustained growth in the amount of genomic data being generated, including in late 1999 the first complete sequence of a human chromosome. The challenge now faced by biological scientists is to make sense of this vast amount of accumulated and accumulating data. Fortunately, numerous databases are provided as resources containing relevant data, and there are similarly many available programs that analyse this data and attempt to understand it. However, the key problem in analysing this genomic data is how to integrate the software and primary databases in a flexible and robust way. The wide range of available programs conform to very different input, output and processing requirements, typically with little consideration given to issues of integration, and in many cases with only token efforts made in the direction of usability. In this paper, we introduce the problem domain and describe GeneWeaver, a multi-agent system for genome analysis. We expla...
