The recent explosion of biological data and the accompaniment proliferation of distributed databases make it challenging for biologists and bioinformatists to discover the best and concise data resources for their needs, and the most efficient way to access and use them. For the biologist, running bioinformatics analyses involve a time-consuming management of data and tools. Users need support to organize their work, retrieve parameters and reproduce their analyses. They also need to be able to combine their analytic tools using a safe data flow software mechanism. Finally we have designed a system, Stress Gene catalog, to provide a flexible and usable web environment for defining and running bioinformatics analyses for the ease of researchers working in plants sciences. It embeds simple yet powerful data management features that allow the user to reproduce analyses and to combine tools using an adobe flex tool. Rice Stress gene catalog can also act as a front end to provide a unified view of already-existing rice stress gene families and their protein members along with their FASTA sequences. Users can analyze genomic and proteomic data by using the tools that has been integrated in the software (tools for alignments, multiple sequence comparison and to compare a novel sequence with those contained in nucleotide and protein databases).
