Cabinet (Chemical And Biological INformatics NETwork) comprises a set of tools to generate federated chemical and biological informatics servers and a federation of servers built upon these tools. The Cabinet tool set includes tools for handling chemical structures (built upon the Daylight CIS toolkits) as well as protein sequences, Enzyme Commission numbers , protein and ligand structures, images, enzyme networks and other biological and genomics data types. The servers built with Cabinet tools speak HTTP protocol and so can interact with web browsers. They also communicate with each other to exchange queries.
