Funded by the European Union’s Sixth Framework
Programme, The EMBRACE Network of Excellence
brings together seventeen institutions including
seven EMBnet National and Specialist Nodes, in a
concerted effort to provide consistent programmatic
interfaces to a multitude of major bioinformatics
tools and databases. Now in its fourth
year, the EMBRACE partners have produced a
growing collection of web services that are freely
available for use by the community, and these
are now being collected and published via the
project’s newly released Service Registry. The
core function of this publicly-available web site
(the front page of which is shown in Figure 1) is to
allow service providers to publicise their tools in a
form that is easily searched by potential consumers.
Moreover, the registry attempts to embody
a number of the principles and lessons learned
during the early years of EMBRACE.
