Bio-mirror project

The virtual Asian Bioinformation Center (ABC) has replicated its official
web site to 6 partner nations. The Taiwan site can be found at


In the mean time, the bio-mirror project, which has been established
in 1998 is going to be extended into bio-mirror2 project by ABC.


This project will be used as a data repository for ABC in order to
be in complied with the Minimal Information About Bioinformatics
investigation (MIABi). Many Asian nations have signed the Singapore
resolution in order to support the MIABi initiative. The relation of the
ABC and MIABi can be found in the “Introduction to Asian
Bioinformation Center
” file presented by Dr. Ueng-Cheng Yang in
International Conference on Bioinformatics 2009. Those who are
interested in promoting the concept of MIABi are welcome to sign
