Data sharing with other programs PubAnatomy emphasize the interoperability by adopting the aforementioned data sharing and user management schema. It allows a users to export a dataset, name the dataset, record its parameters, write description and choose whether to share the dataset. Other applications or PubAnatomy per se can retrieve the dataset from the central database for additional analysis. As this figure demonstrates PubOnto, another program developed in our group, imports a set of PMIDs exported from PubAnatomy and maps it to Gene Ontology for identifying potential cellular and molecular processes related to a brain structure.
