DBE2 is an information system for the management of biological experiment data from different data domains in a unified and simple way. It provides persistent data storage, worldwide accessibility of the data and the opportunity to load, save, modify, and annotate the data. It is seamlessly integrated in the VANTED system as an add-on, thereby extending the VANTED platform towards data management. DBE2 also utilizes controlled vocabulary from the Ontology Lookup Service to allow the management of terms such as substance names, species names, and measurement units, aiming at an eased data integration.
