Recent advances in molecular biology tools have opened the
flood-gates on data production, and novel product discovery
and development strategies using "genomic" approaches are
becoming commonplace. Consequently, computing systems are an
essential component of modern biotechnology operations: they
are requiredl for data collection, management and analysis.
These systems rely on efficient access to the global
collection of genomic databases (DNA and protein sequences,
for example), software tools and network-based material.
These resources are growing in size and number daily, and
sophisticated computing systems are required for managing the
growing data production capacity with this expanding resource
base. The World Wide Web (WWW) based solution described here,
WebANGIS , is a system for the biotechnology and academic
sectors for data management and analysis. WebANGIS uses an
integrated WWW based system that allows secure and efficient
high throughput analysis of molecular sequence information
through the Internet.
