Polychronidou E, Vlachakis D, Papageorgiou L, Vlamos P., Biological databases as key for data integration, analysis and visualization modeling, Onl J Bioinform., 16 (1): 51-60, 2015. In systems biology information distribution is still done through scientific articles. We describe the continuous growing rate of biomolecular information through the list of the biological databases active in 2013 according to the 2014 Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue. The article describes the uniformity between databases despite their context and focuses on their structure, especially in the field of data identification. This layer of the database structure is related to data mining, an approach that pursues to classify the income data automatically, focusing on their higher accuracy


Keywords: biological databases, database structure, data integration, analysis, visualization.
