modMine is built using InterMine, an open source software package developed as part of the FlyMine project.
InterMine makes it possible to create data warehouses of biological data with a powerful web query tool for very little programming effort. It can be used to build databases from a single data set or by integrating multiple sources of data. Support is provided for several common biological formats and provides a framework for adding your own data. InterMine includes a sophisticated web interface that works ‘out of the box’ for any data which can be customised from within the interface.
InterMine is already being used in several other projects. For more information please see InterMine documentation or contact us at help [at] modencode.org. You may also download the modMine data and read about how to make a local copy of modMine.
