Some institutions like culture collections, museums or research groups want to share their catalogs, data or want to communicate with clients. The Internet version of BioloMICS allows non programmers, curators and researchers to publish data on the web within seconds. It's extremely easy and all the wanted tools are there.
Just have a look at three different examples of potential usage of the Internet version of BioloMICS. The first one is the culture collection of the CBS in The Netherlands. They use it as a catalog and clients query the database and order strains online. Another example is the Fusarium database of Dr. K. O'Donnell where pairwise sequence alignments and polyphasic identifications are available. Look also at the Q-Bank website containing a vast array of data and services.
Managers or curators of databases can decide which tables and records should be published on their website. In one click, records can be released to make visible from the website. When data are changed from the desktop version of the software, the website is automatically updated. The online database is searchable and Internet users can easily query it via basic or advanced searching tools. Detailed information of the records of the database (strains, specimens, bibliography, taxonomy, molecular data, etc) will be automatically displayed.
The style of the website can be customized by the curator. No webmaster is required. Menus can be changed on the fly and pages are managed and editable from a specific interface of the BioloMICS software.
Many other options are available
The news system can be used by curators to communicate with their clients about important news items related to their collection.
The cart system allows clients to select the strains or specimens they want to order. Curators receive a warning email and can take care of the orders using tools that are available from the desktop version of BioloMICS.
The deposit system allows Internet users to send data to the central system where the curator can control the validity of the data and decide to incorporate deposited items in the active database.
The pairwise sequence alignment tool allows users to use an algorithm similar to Blastn to align unknown DNA sequences against a reference database. The polyphasic identification and classification tools allow comparing morphology, physiology or molecular data to obtain reliable identifications. Phenetic trees can also be produced dynamically.
