About Us

During the past decade there was a significant growth and change in the types of tools, databases and resources for bioinformatics. However, bioinformatics is going to be more specific, increasing the number of bioinformatics-wares has made it difficult for researchers to find the most appropriate databases, tools or methods matching their needs. Our coordinated effort has been planned to establish a reference website in Bioinformatics as a free public repository of tools, databases, directories and resources annotated with contextual information and organized by functional relevance. For each record submitted to the website database almost all related data (40 features) has been extracted. These include information from the biological category and subcategory to the paper and developer information. Searching the query keyword(s) returns links containing the entered keyword(s) found within the different features of the records with more weights on the title, abstract and application fields. The search results provide the users with the most informative features of the records to select the most suitable ones. In the current version of our search engine the usefulness of the returned results is ranked according to the matching score which is based on the terms weight obtained by using TF-IDF (Term Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency) methods. Therefore, this search engine will screen a comprehensive index of bioinformatics tools, databases, algorithms and literatures annotated with information about their context and provide the best suited records (links) to the researcher need.
As BioInfoBase documents, records are never considered complete and may be continually edited and improved. Over time, this generally results in an upward trend of quality and a growing consensus over a neutral representation of information.
None of the records are not of a standard quality from the beginning and they may contain incomplete or debatable information. However, many records start their lives as displaying the most important features highlighted in Data Entry Instruction; and, after a long process of editing they gradually achieve better balanced coverage of their subject as a standard entry. Hopefully, this long way will be easily shortened and minimized by each record's developer(s) in near future.
