The primary objective of BOX is to provide an open core of well-defined UML and XML specifications for the dissemination of genomic data. The first release of this core library deals with metabolic data and genome annotation data and is composed of :
- Models specification
- XML-Schema implementations
- Associated documentation
The XML Schemas: BOXml
BOXtk is the java toolkit associated to BOXml. It consists of a set of java applications, mostly prototypes, designed to demonstrate the use of BOXml. Its associated documentation is available on the BOX web site.
BOXml documentation and BOXtk applications are available at the download area of the BOX web site.
