AIST have been working on information infrastructure that leads to the efficient utilization of life science data.

 What is the Life Science Database Integration Project?

This project promotes research and development required for integrating life science databases which are created by various organizations. By doing so, the project aims at that the research results in life science in Japan will be shared and utilized broadly by research communities and that life science as a whole will be active. In the project, four focused areas have been given, namely, “strategy planning”, “construction and maintenance of portal sites”, “research and development of database integration technology”, and “promotion of biology-related database integration”. Among those, an infrastructure technology development program has been given for “research and development of database integration technology” and an integration promotion program has been given for “promotion of biology-related database integration”. Many organizations participate in those programs, carrying out advanced research.
