Abstract

A bioinformatician has a large number of homology data sources to choose from. These data sources need to be combined before a query can be posed over the combined data. We propose a generic probabilistic approach to combining grouping data from multiple sources. Our approach incorporates an iteratively evolving view on trust, allowing the bioinformatician to express his fine-grained view on how much the data in the sources can be trusted. We evaluate our approach by combining 3 real-world biological databases and show that it scales well for realistic amounts of data and uncertainty.
