Abstract

Data in the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database is traditionally available in a flat file format that has a number of known shortcomings. With XML rapidly emerging as a standard data exchange format that can address some problems of flat file formats by defining data structure and syntax, there is now a demand to distribute EMBL data in an XML format. XEMBL is a service tool that employs CORBA servers to access EMBL data, and distributes the data in XML format via a number of mechanisms.
