GeneWebEx: Gene Annotation Web Extraction, Aggregation, and Updating from Web-Based Biomolecular Databanks
Numerous genomic annotations are currently stored in different web-accessible databanks that scientists need to mine with user-defined queries and in a batch mode to orderly integrate the diverse mined data in suitable user-customizable working environments. Unfortunately, to date, most accessible databanks can be interrogated only for a single gene or protein at a time and generally the data retrieved are available in HTML page format only. We developed GeneWebEx to effectively mine data of interest in different HTML pages of web-based databanks, and organize extracted data for further analyses. GeneWebEx utilizes userdefined templates to identify data to extract, and aggregates and structures them in a database designed to allocate the various extractions from distinct biomolecular databanks. Moreover, a template-based module enables automatic updating of extracted data. Validations performed on GeneWebEx allowed us to efficiently gather relevant annotations from various sources, an...
