Description of Effort:
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) uses XML standards to enable scientists to exchange data and share analytical tools available via the web at LANL. The databases at all the sites are combined in an XML file at LANL where they can be viewed from any world wide web site via a browser. The analytical tools that use this XML data set are computational programs which in some cases use advanced versions of XML technology. LANL is developing DTDs for general genomic data and for genomic signature data and is designing an XML tool to help genomic researchers locate chemical pathway information in genetic data stored in LANL's XML files. LANL's projects are harnessing the full power of XML for interoperability and building semantic networks as genomic research tools.
