  1. Resource Description
    "The Strategies WDK is a framework for creating "data mining" genomics websites. It is a layer on top of your relational database. Supported DBMS platforms are Oracle and PostgreSQL. It is schema independent, which means it does not require the data in your database to be in a particular form. Use the WDK to: • define a coarse-grained data model (based on the tables in your existing database) that specifies the searches the user can run and the kinds of results he or she can get • define a customized view of that data model using Java Server Pages The data model that you define in the WDK is a Data Transfer Object (DTO) layer. A DTO is an object that brings together data that may come from many tables in the database. It is good practice to provide to a web site or other high-level data consumers objects at a coarse granularity. In the WDK the DTOs are called records. For example, a Gene record may bring together data from many tables that contain information relating to a Gene. Records in the WDK are configured in XML. In sum, the WDK model lets you configure records and searches that return sets of them." Strategies WDK was developed jointly with Cristina Aurrecoechea<sup>1</sup>, Eileen T. Kraemer<sup>2</sup>, Cary Pennington<sup>1</sup>, and Jessica C. Kissinger<sup>1,3</sup> from the <b><sup>1</sup>Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases, University of Georgia</b>, <b><sup>2</sup>Department of Computer Science, University of Georgia</b>, and <b><sup>3</sup>Department of Genetics, University of Georgia</b>.
