This project brings the bioinformatics community a new development concept in which users can access all data and applications hosted in the main research centers as if they were installed on their local machines, providing seamless integration between disparate services. The project moves to integrate the sequence similarity searching at EBI and NCBI by using web services. It also intends to allow molecular biologists to save their searches and act as a log book for their sequence similarity searches. The project will also allow the biologists to share their sequences and results with others.
