Databases are being used extensively for scientific applications to acquire, store, analyze, present, and share data. Among the many fields of science, biological databases are noted for their complexity, hierarchy, heterogeneity, and dynamics.  Currently, we focus on a botanical database and a web-based interface for the acquisition, management, analysis, and exchange of the dwarf mistletoe specimen.  We are studying the methods for the integration of heterogeneous data: numerical, textual, visual, spatial, and temporal.  To learn more, please visit Current Projects.
