For my past and present research work, please see my homepage.
My most current work on XML in Bioinformatics integration is Moby Web Services creation tool called Daggoo.

I've collected here a list of XML resources that may be of use to the bioinformatician. If you have anything to add, or any comments/corrections, please don't hestitate to contact me (gordonp@ucalgary.ca).

Some XML definitions, mostly with implementations

Note that local copies of DTDs are not necessarily the most recent versions.
