BioCloud Search EnGene is a web application built on Google’s platform using GAE (Google App Engine).
It adopts a gene-centric approach and enables users to find out information about human genes and gene-drug interactions using a simple ‘Google-like’ query interface that accepts public gene identifiers (e.g. Entrez Gene ID) as keywords.
The application is designed to find and reorganize all the information related to the executed query on Human Genes. The results are re-formatted into a modular view to allow the user to read this information in a more organized and coherent way. BioCloud Search EnGene also takes you straight to the source for further readings. You always end up in the right place.
BioCloud Search EnGene is based on the data contained in the following public data sources:
BioCloud Search EnGene has been designed to find and reorganize information related to Human Genes. It is maintained by Università di Cagliari that authorizes you to access and use BioCloud Search EnGene and the data and information contained on this web application and datastore under the following conditions:

BioCloud Search EnGene (often referred to as BSE) is a web application developed using a platform as a service (PaaS) called Google App Engine.
BioCloud Search EnGene is a free service because is a university project funded by RAS (Regione Autonoma della Sardegna)
BSE uses Google App Engine because this PaaS (Platform as a Service) has enabled us to build our web application on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. Furthermore this kind of service allows us to maintain the focus on the app development.
