How to build a system that manages bioinformatics content


We discuss how to build systems with sophisticated features based on a core set of bioinformatics tools. Beside from being the front-end server to the core analyses, such a system can manage users, bioinformatics content and shared data. Using tools available in the open-source community, we show how to build a system with such sophisticated features with a relatively minimal effort, especially in comparison to building such a system from scratch. We discuss the notion of Model-Content Management-View, under whose framework similar applications with such desirable features beyond the field Bioinformatics can be built. Our system can be viewed at http://cetus.cs.memphis.edu/rnamotif.
