Overview of EdgeExpressDB, federation, web-services and clients. Using loader scripts that communicate through the EdgeExpress perl API, the features, edges and expression are loaded into an instance of the EEDB schema. Multiple instances of EEDB can communicate in a federation through the perl API. The EdgeExpress webservices export data in XML, BED, and GFF3 formats directly and DAS through ProServer integration, which allows AJAX clients and genome browsers to access the data.
