Ranking Results

The graph structure of Biozon and the emergent graph resulting from integration of many sources lends itself well to analysis. Particularly relevant to searches and result sets is the ability to assign ranks to Biozon objects based on the graph structure.

To assign prominence values to objects Biozon employs a method that resembles PageRank by Google and search results may be ordered by ranks. These values are typically correlated with the amount of information associated with different entities.

As this ranking method as applied to biological objects is new, we would like as much feedback as possible regarding the quality of the ordering. We currently open a popup window that allows users to rate the quailty of the ranking. Other comments may be sent to Biozon via the feedback form.
