Lineage Path Integration for Phylogenetic Resources
With the increase of genome and proteome data, phylogenetic information and phylogenetic analysis tools are increasing greatly in current biological repositories. First, many repositories allow users to browse information about species through taxonomic tools. These tools present the species with its lineage path and links to the various types of information the repository provides about the species. Second, some multiple sequence alignment tools offer users basic phylogenetic data through applying basic reconstruction algorithms to the alignment. With the availability of this information in multiple locations, integrated tools are needed to allow the user to compare this data. This paper presents data integration research on lineage paths using the BIO-AJAX framework. It introduces BIO-AJAX for Lineage Paths, a tool that integrates lineage path information for NCBI Taxonomy Database  and the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS).
