Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Summary: We describe a database and information discovery system named DIG (Duke Integrated Genomics) designed to facilitate the process of gene annotation and the discovery of functional context. The DIG system collects and organizes gene annotation and functional information, and includes tools that support an understanding of genes in a functional context by providing a framework for integrating and visualizing gene expression, protein interaction and literature-based interaction networks.
