Ondex is a graph-based data integration framework. Contents of various online databases can be parsed into its generic graph data structure, which represents them in a semantically rich fashion. Different mapping methods allow for interlinking these contents while preserving their provenance and evidence. Ondex also comes with its own graph visualisation tool kit, the OVTK. The Newcastle Ondex team is developing an integrated Ondex dataset covering the molecular biological aspects of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Semantic and probabilistic reasoning techniques will be employed to explore the complex system surrounding telomere function in yeast.
