Comparative mapping, thanks to the mutual enrichment of maps of diverse species, emerges as a powerful tool to gather new knowledge about genomics. In order to structure and store information stemming from mapping comparisons, we develop GeMCore. It is a knowledge base that supplies graphical interfaces allowing data analysis dedicated to particular domains (agronomy, medicine, molecular evolution). GeMCore is based on a data entity model that integrates mapping, biological and sequence data and takes into account the specific constraints inherent in the comparison of maps among species.
