Project description


Duration: October 2005 - December 2007

The METAFUNCTIONS project, coordinated by the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, Bremen (Germany) began on 1 October 2005. This project is pooling expertise in bioinformatics, computer science, geographical information systems and marine sciences to develop a data-mining system that correlates genetic patterns in genomes and metagenomes with contextual environmental data. GRID-Europe is responsible for the development of the "Genomes Mapserver", the Internet-based GIS application to retrieve information from the "environmental/genomic" database.
