Abstract: Biological research frequently requires specialist databases to support in-depth analysis about specific subjects. With the rapid growth of biological sequences in public domain data sources, it is difficult to keep these databases current with the sources. Simple queries formulated to retrieve relevant sequences typically return a large number of false matches and thus demanding manual filtration. In this paper, we propose a novel methodology that can support automatic incremental updating of specialist databases. Complex queries for incremental updating of relevant sequences are learned using Association Rule Mining (ARM), resulting in a significant reduction in false positive matches. This is the first time ARM is used in formulating descriptive queries for the purpose of incremental maintenance of specialised biological databases. We have implemented and tested our methodology on two real-world databases. Our experiments conclusively show that the methodology guarantees an F-score of up to 80% in detecting new sequences for these two databases. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2006.
