A mass of biological sequence and structural information have been produced in biological laboratories since the techniques to get the sequences of genomes or proteins have been improved in HGP (Human Genome Project). Unfortunately, there are scarcely software packages available to deal with the biological data in most of biological laboratories and they are just stored in file formats. An integrated management system of biological data is required to manage the sequence and annotation data taken from other open databases to improve the analysis of sequence data in biological laboratories. We therefore suggest a personalized system to edit, store and retrieve biological information, and convert the formats of sequence data, as well as to integrate and manage data.
