BridgeDb is a platform used for identifier mapping in WikiPathways and PathVisio with support for various languages like as a Cytoscape plugin, as an R package, and an API implemented in OpenRiskNet and OpenPHACTS. BridgeDB provides a platform to link other databases like Ensembl, NCBI Gene, ChEBI, PubChem, etc. The main idea of this project is to add functionality and release a major version of BridgeDb. This new version would support Java version above 8. It will also have support for ‘Secondary identifier’. As a part of the project, metadata output provided by BridgeDb will also be formatted to meet the ‘The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship’.
