Biological Databases

Prachi Kale and Gopal Dalvi


Accessing multiple biological databases involves either explicit navigation through multiple databases or expressing a query in the query language of the designer which is a formidable task. In this we propose a graphical user interface to multiple biological databases. The query which consists of the data to be retrieved and the condition, if any, to be satisfied is expressed in an intuitive way. The link information that exists in the databases is used automatically by the system and the relevant data retrieved. The retrieved data can be viewed in more than one format. There is also a provision for refining the query.

Many biometric methods are closely connected with methods of pattern recognition and image analysis. The realization of a number of biometric technologies requires using the last achievements in this area. Some elements of technology based on some methods of image analysis are demonstrated by the example of iris person identification. From a position of organizing the educational process, laboratory works in the area of biometric technologies allow stimulating studentsí inquisitiveness in studying methods and  algorithms for image processing and pattern recognition.  

We develop a pattern recognition algorithm and photo-identification method that uses photographs taken in the field to identify individual marbled salamanders, using their dorsal patterns as 'fingerprints.' The algorithm ranks all images in a database against each other in order of visual similarity. We couple this technology with a graphic user interface to visually confirm or reject top-ranked algorithm results.                           

Synthesis and applications: We develop, test, and apply a pattern recognition algorithm that enables efficient identification of individual marbled salamanders in a database exceeding 1000 images. We expect that this algorithm can be modified to facilitate individual identification in many other organisms because it does not rely on manual coding or discrete geometric pattern features. High performance results suggest that it can be scaled to larger databases, allowing biologists to address critical conservation-based questions regarding demography, reproduction and dispersal of rare and endangered species.
