The high-level architecture of mspecLINE. Using custom Ruby scripts, we extracted data from BioThesaurus, MEDLINE, and MeSH to construct the NMD and MEDLINE Data Stores in a MySQL database. The mspecLINE Data Service collates protein and peptide information from the PeptideAtlas caGrid Service along with data from the Data Stores. We implemented the Data Service in Java and it presents data to the Javascript-based mspecLINE Web User Interface via a web service. The web service could be used by other applications to access mspecLINE data.
