Welcome to Malariapedia.info - the semantic wiki of MalariaBase.org
This is an experimental prototype of a semantic wiki containing genome data from species related to malaria. Right now about 40000 articles with information from Ensembl/BioMart about Anopheles gambiae genes, transcripts and proteins have been loaded as semantic properties to serve as test bed for the development of the query interface and the display options for semantic data. Similar information about Plasmodium falciparum is available in over 6000 articles either retrieved from the Plasmo DB or intgrated as linked external data.
The wiki uses the Mediawiki software with the Semanic Mediawiki extension to store data as queriable properties. The extension SemanticQueryFormTool was developed to provide a query interface which allows to combine simpler questions to very complex queries. It also plays an important role in providing a very flexible and extendable display and analysis system of single property values.
Additional features which have been implemented are a comment and rating system for articles which can serve as communication tools for users. The extension Semantic Google Maps has been significantly extended to display large sets of geocoded semantic properties and to combine markes from different datasets in one map (experimental).

These searches allow to answer complex questions by combining multiple simpler search results and to fine tune and save the result sets.
It is e.g. possible to retrieve a list of genes which are located on chromosome 2L between base 23000 and 45000, have been annotated either with GO term 'membrane' or 'cell' or belong into the GO Slim category 'cell surface' and are in a selected type of cells 20 times more expressed than in another.
