I need your help and advice (###question### at the end of the paragraph for the really busy person). I am currently working on BioMAJ which is a workflow engine dedicated to data synchronization and processing. Its purpose is to manage and supervise databank updates, it also could do the pre or post processes of each banks (GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ, PBD...). This management saves a considerable amount of time, you do not have to think when to check databank, and what is the local version of your databank. BioMAJ has the ambition to adapt to new uses of databases, and to do this I will need your advice as bioinformatician/bioinformaticist or biologist or person interested by the question :
###How to you process your reference databank ? or reference genome ? (for example blast, indexation, extraction of gene sets, request in RDF/SPARQL ... ) Which data types do you work with?###
Thank you for reading this post. I would be grateful for each of your contribution!
