Integrating biological data sources, making it easy to query and analyse data
What is InterMine?
What technologies do we use?
What sort of data does InterMine have?
Since InterMine is open source, many research organisations around the world run InterMines with their own organisms, ranging from mice and fruit flies to a broad range of plants. Visit the InterMine Registry to see them all. (The registry was a GSoC project!) Most InterMines also have a "data sources" tab which tells you more about where the data in that specific instance originates.
What kind of problems does InterMine solve?
Genomic data is often messy, and there is a lot of it. Scientists use different terms to mean the same thing, and even assign the same gene different names! We aim to help scientists make sense of such ambiguity, diversity and complexity.
One way to help is to provide visualisations, so we’re always excited to add and adapt different ways to display our data. How do you visualise the features inside a protein, or the interactions between two sets of genes?
Code you write for InterMine can have a large impact - since there are dozens of different InterMines, we aim to write code that can be easily deployed on any of them.
