Objectives of the Allergy and Asthma Portal

  • Create the computational framework for an Allergy and Asthma Portal (the AAP) to the well-established InnateDB database at AllerGen.innatedb.com.

  • Annotate a comprehensive list of genes with published evidence of a role in allergy/asthma, incorporating into the database extensive contextual molecular interaction information to build a network of allergy/asthma-associated molecular pathways.

  • Continue to develop the database, linking the "allergy interactome" to relevant annotations from other gene and protein databases, pathways, gene ontology, phenotypes, etc.

  • Explore the potential of expanding the AAP resource to include phenotypic, genetic and other data collected by the AllerGen consortium as resources allow.
