Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0049540A1] A method and system for dynamic storage, retrieval and display of experimental information with determined relationships. A graphical user interface is presented from which shapes and arrows representing biological entities and transformations respectively, can be input and edited. Multidimensional information based on a pre-determined hierarchy is input to link the entities and transformations to additional information about the entities and transformations. Related information, if any, is input to link the entities and transformations to other information in plural external databases on a public network such as the Internet. Information associated with plural shapes connected with plural arrows is saved as a biological pathway with determined relationships in a database. The biological pathway defines a hierarchical representation of a biological function with determined relationships between entities and transformations. Biological pathway diagrams such as cell pathways with determined relationships may be dynamically input, edited and dynamically generated to represent biological functions, such as cellular functions, to enable a user to visually interact with identified dimensions of biological information. A user may dynamically navigate through identified dimensions of biological information to find out a relationship of a specific piece of biological information with other pieces of biological information. The method and system may help facilitate the abstraction of knowledge from information for biological pathways and provide new bioinformatic techniques.
