BioMart is a robust, query-oriented data integration system, based on distributed data warehousing ideas. The system can be applied to a single or multiple databases. It supports scalable large scale querying of individual databases as well as query-chaining between them. All datasources in the system comply with the BioMart data model - a simple, query optimised database schema. The system consists of database schema specification, administration tools for deploying and configuring mart-spec databases and data access software, which includes web and standalone interfaces. The BioMart suite is still under developement.
