By Kevin Strange (auth.), Kevin Strange (eds.)

Molecular biology has pushed a strong reductionist, or “molecule-c- tric,” method of organic learn within the final 1/2 the 20 th century. pink- tionism is the try to clarify complicated phenomena through defining the practical houses of the person parts of the process. Bloom (1) has stated the post-genome sequencing period because the finish of “naïve reductionism. ” purple- tionist tools will stay an important part of all organic learn efforts, yet “naïve reductionism,” the idea that reductionism on my own can result in a whole figuring out of residing organisms, isn't really tenable. Organisms are basically even more than the sum in their components, and the habit of complicated physiological strategies can't be understood just by realizing how the elements paintings in isolation. platforms biology has emerged within the wake of genome sequencing because the s- cessor to reductionism (2–5). The “systems” of platforms biology are outlined over a large span of complexity starting from macromolecules that have interaction to hold out a selected job to entire organisms. structures biology is integrative and seeks to appreciate and expect the habit or “emergent” houses of advanced, multicomponent organic procedures. A systems-level characteri- tion of a organic strategy addresses the next 3 major questions: (1) What are the elements of the procedure (i. e.

Displaying Remote Annotations on the Genome Browser An often overlooked but very useful feature of the Genome Browser is the ability to display remotely hosted annotations within the context of annotations housed at WormBase (20).

Screen-scraping scripts can be created with limited knowledge of a programming language such as Perl. Although not an official WormBase data mining method, the ease with which these scripts can be created make them a viable strategy for fetching data from the site. Screen-scraping offers several advantages over more direct data-mining approaches. Users need not be familiar with the data model in order to write effective scripts. Furthermore, the web displays at WormBase often integrate data from several different classes in a single comprehensive display.
