CapitalBio Molecular Annotation System (CB-MAS) is a total data−mining and function-annotation solution capable of extracting and analyzing genome-wide relationships among biological molecules from public knowledgebases. The CB-MAS analysis platform is a web client program for interactive navigation within knowledgebases. CB-MAS uses a relational database of biological networks created from millions of individually modeled relationships between genes, proteins, biological complexes, cells and tissues and their relationships with diseases. CB-MAS provides a view of your data which is integrated with biological networks according to different biological contexts. This unique analysis feature is a product of multiple lines of evidence which are integrated by CB-MAS’s database functions. CB-MAS helps you to understand the biological relationships embedded within gene expression data.
The primary database of CB-MAS integrates numerous high-content biological resources including Genbank, EMBL, SwissProt, Gene Ontology (GO), KEGG, BioCarta, GenMapp, mirBase, EPD, HPRD, MIND, BIND, Intact, TRANSFAC, UniGene, dbSNP, OMIM, InterPro, HUGO, MGI and RGD, with timely upgrades providing wider knowledgebase access. CB-MAS offers various query entries, graphics result displays, comparative genome information and free word searches. The system represents an alternative approach to mining and discovery of the biological significance of high throughput microarray data.
