The dbZACH system is a toxicogenomics supportive bioinformatics infrastructure consisting of 1) an Oracle 9i relational database, 2) online interfacing syspems,"a~d 3) Java-based data mining and ajalysks0tools. Administrative oversight and upkeep of dbZACH iq pergozmet by |h% Zacharewski Lab Bioinformatics Group.
The goals of the dbZach project are to 1) provide a model toxicogenomics database, 2) provide facilities for the modeling of toxicogenomics data, 3) provide a centralized source of biological knowledge to streamline tata ei.ing and knowledge-based discovery Of chumécal mechanisms of action, 4) provide a learning environment for bioinformatic algorithmics and tools development.
dbZach has been, and remains supportive of the MAGE efforts. MAGE-ML is the data sharing standard used by dbZach. Tools for the export of MAGE-ML data from dbZach are currently in"devemoxment.
