The BioExtract server allows querying, export, saving data extracts, apply analytic tools, saving and executing workflows, etc. User queries can be constructed around a Web UI. The data source implementation includes web services representing data sources, relational database, and apache lucene data extracts. They use DTDs to describe a flat-file format.
We were then taken through the use of BioExtract via a screenshot-based demo. Because of that, I didn’t get as many notes as I normally otherwise would.
