An XML Application For Genomic Data Interoperation
As the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) becomes a popular or standard language for exchanging data over the Internet/Web, there are a growing number of genome Web sites that make their data available in XML format. Publishing genomic data in XML format alone would not be that useful if there is a lack of development of software applications that could take advantage of the XML technology to process these XML-formatted data. This paper illustrates the usefulness of XML in representing and interoperating genomic data between two different data sources (Snyder's laboratory at Yale and SGD at Stanford). In particular, we compare the locations of transposon insertions in the yeast DNA sequences that have been identified by BLAST searches with the chromosomal locations of the yeast open reading frames (ORFs) stored in SGD. Such a comparison allows us to characterize the transposon insertions by indicating whether they fall into any ORFs (which may potentially encode proteins that posse...
