about bii
BioInvestigation Index (BII) is a new prototype infrastructure set to provide users with a common structured representation and storage mechanism for a variety of biological, biomedical and environmental studies. The figure below illustrates the BII infrastructure and its main components: ISAcreator standalone editor tool, internal import layer, BII repository and its query interface.

Although relying on other EBI production systems, the BII infrastructure shields the users from their diverse formats and ontologies, by progressively implementing in the editor tool integrative cross-domain 'standards' such as MIBBI, OBO Foundry and ISA-TAB.
