Objects in Biozon are the fundamental building blocks of all stored
knowledge. They correspond to physical entities (such as a Proteins),
or sets of physical entities (such as a Protein Family, or an
Interaction). Each object in Biozon is associated with a unique
profile page that shows a quick summary and provides access to all descriptors that
contain knowledge about it. Additionally, we display the biological
context of that object by showing all other objects that are related
to it (see for example RPB9_YEAST).
From here, it is possible to visit any of those related data types and
traverse the data graph.
Please note that all information on a particular profile page is aggregated
based on the physical properties of the profile entity. In particular, this
means that information is not aggregated by organism. Information
pertaining to multiple organisms may appear on a single profile page, which
may be confusing. We are planning to develop organism-specific projections
of profile pages that filter out any information not relevant to a particular
target organism of interest.
