Using Biozon

The information in Biozon is logically represented as a graph in which nodes represent some unit of data, and edges indicate a relationship between two nodes. The graph that you are presented with in the main homepage (as in the figure below) is a simplified schematic representation of the main data types in Biozon and their relationships. Each type of data is searchable through a type-specific form, accessible by clicking on the corresponding icon. You can also form complex queries that span multiple data types or fuzzy searches that include also similarity relations between entities. You can rank the results using prominence values that were computed based on spectral analysis of the data graph, view each entity in its broader biological context, save your queries and materialize the results using your user account.
