Abstract: In the past decade "Big Science" such as the Genome Project has generated an enormous amount of data in the life sciences. Concurrently, the synergy of this project with existing research has quickened the pace of biological discovery. But the major drawback that is beginning to be felt worldwide is the primitive level of organisation in the data accumulated. Without a proper framework or knowledge scaffold to hang and interconnect the various bits of data and information, the national knowledge-to-data ratio is declining rapidly. We are trying to serve a solution to this enigma by providing a World Wide Web (WWW) interface to Biosoftware and at the same time have come up with a database integration tool that can query heterogeneous, geographically scattered and disparate databases simultaneously. In this report we will talk about BioInformatics in general with specific reference to BioInformatics Centre (BIC) at the National University of Singapore.
