ThaleMine integrates public data from a variety of sources including TAIR, BAR, Panther, and GO. The data from TAIR was downloaded en mass, re-organized, and indexed using the data warehouse style of integration. In other cases, i.e. BAR, the data remains distributed across the internet and is downloaded piecemeal at display time using the data federation, or web services, style of integration. The Araport organizers welcome offers or suggestions of new data types and new data sources.
