Summary "The study of correlations between genome variation and phenotype diversity is a key theme in the current biosciencefield. This has lead to a large number of different studies generating huge amounts of data, which typically must be shared amongst many collaborators and researchers. To store and use such data efficiently, it is paramount that biomedical researchers describe the data in a compatible and similar way. The Japan Biological Informatics Consortium has developed a data model(PaGE-OM:Phenotype and Genotype-Object Model), which have validated PaGE-OM by applying it to various existing phenotype and genotype databases, and will demonstrating how further databases can be expressed in the PaGE-OM.

PPI view

Summary "The PPI view displays H-InvDB human protein-protein interaction (PPI)information. PPI data were collected from five major public PPI databases (BIND, DIP, MINT, HPRD, IntAct) and integrated them as a non-redundant PPI dataset. As the result, we got 32,198 human PPIs comprised of 9,268 proteins. (at H-InvDB version 5.0) The PPI view displays proteins which interact with the usersCHR(39) query proteins (or gene products), and provides links to H-InvDB locus view and cDNA view, which guide you to the gene locations and the detailed gene functional annotations of these interacting proteins, respectively.PPI view: http://www.h-invitational.jp/hinv/ppi/ PPI view sample:http://h-invitational.jp/hinv/ppi/ppi_view.cgi?hip=HIP000084307"

PRTR map

Summary "The PRTR map consists of an emission map and a concentration map, and the emission map shows the emissions of PRTR notification data from 2002 to 2018 (ascertained from 2001 to 2017) announced by the government. , It is color-coded by prefecture, city (local government), or town name according to the scale. The concentration map is a 5-fold mesh (5km x 5km) (scale 1) of the annual average daily concentration of chemical substances in Japan from 2002 to 2018 (ascertained from 2001 to 2017). For 200,000 or more, each mesh of the tertiary mesh (1km x 1km *) is color-coded according to the density. The estimated concentration in the atmosphere is the amount of PRTR notification data emitted from FY2002 to FY2018 (ascertained from FY2001 to FY2017) announced by the national government and the amount of data not reported by PRTR (businesses below the skirt). AIST developed by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology based on annual meteorological data, etc., in addition to emission data for each mesh, which is the sum of emissions from businesses, mobile bodies, and households that are not subject to PRTR. -Calculated with ADMER. (AIST-ADMER Ver, 2.6 is used for estimation up to 2013, and AIST-ADMER Ver, 3.0 is used from 2014) * The 1km x 1km mesh is an estimated value based on PRTR data from 2010 onwards.Emissions (business establishments, 3rd mesh, 5x mesh), estimated atmospheric concentration (3rd mesh, 5x mesh), and input data for AIST-ADMER calculation, which are published on the PRTR map, can be downloaded from here. is."

Summary "toxBridge ? a statistical interpretation of building relationship between in vivo and in vitro for the purpose of constructing a panel as a marker group for predicting hepatotoxicity. Based on the rat in vivo and human in vitro gene expression data, the significance of gene signatures and pathways were analyzed for about 170 medical compounds at four dose levels and time points. The characteristics of toxBridge are focused on in vivo-in vitro and in vitro human-rat bridging, and various correlation indices between the bridges in the expression profile are stored in the database. It has the function of searching for compounds and searching for genes and pathways. This function allows the selection of which compounds are significant as bridging using correlation indices and creates a molecular panel in bridging by selecting a compound having a superior correlation index."
