News/BioMart Special Issue in Database

Jump to: navigation, search

I am very pleased to announce the publication of the DATABASE special issue dedicated to the BioMart project

BioMart is a unique open source data federation technology that provides unified access to distributed databases storing a wide range of data. This DATABASE issue recognizes BioMart's outstanding contributions to bioinformatics and documents the achievements of the BioMart community, which has grown impressively over the last ten years to become what it is today, a collaboration between numerous database projects on five continents: Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.

I would like to thank and congratulate the BioMart community on this impressive achievement. This issue would have not been possible without their dedication, expertise, passion and enthusiasm.
