Accounts give the account holder the ability to save and manage
queries. This feature can become quite useful if one would like to
reproduce search results, especially with complex or fuzzy queries
that contain many clauses.
Using your account you can also materialize the results of your
queries and download them to your computer for further
analysis. Moreover, utilizing the time stamp feature of Biozon
documents, users can choose to materialize and re-materialize the
results as of arbitrary times in the past, thus allowing them to
reproduce the same result set that was obtained on the original query
Another purpose of user accounts is to allow users to access private
address spaces. This feature becomes especially useful if some
datasets are privately owned and cannot be made accessible to all, or
if there are restrictions on the use and distribution of the data (as
is the case with DIP). To allow certain groups of users to access
protected data that they are privileged to, Biozon defines different
classes of users that are mapped to different domains of data. Each
user can belong to multiple user classes, thus maximizing flexibility
in data accessibility.
