Bioremediation of pollutant compounds in soil and water by microorganisms is a very important discipline from both theoretical and practical points of view. This area requires integration of huge amounts of data coming from:
MetaRouter is a system for maintaining the heterogeneous information related to biodegradation within a framework that allows its query, modification and mining.
It includes much information that grows by automatic retrieval from public databases or by manual interactive insertion by the user. The data is linked internally and with external databases.
Mining this data is carried out by the pathfinder subsystem, which can locate biodegradative pathways for a given compound and select, among all the possible pathways, those with given characteristics (e.g. shortest one, etc.).
These features make MetaRouter an essential system for laboratories working in Microbiology and Biodegradation. It is also ideal for use as a teaching tool in courses and seminars on Bioremediation.
The system is very easy to use and maintain through its web interface.
The system has been developed by bioinformaticians with wide experience in the field and has an open and modular architecture that can be adapted to the individual requirements of each customer.
