Our Mission

Create a “Knowledge Network”, a large compendium of public-domain data that embodies community data on genes, proteins, functions, species, and phenotypes, and relationships among them.

Develop a scientific platform where biomedical scientists, clinical researchers, and bioinformaticians perform common as well as advanced analysis tasks on their datasets, guided by the knowledge network.
