In order to be able to manage the growing amount of information in the life sciences, the international research community has developed numerous electronic databases over the last few years. Supported by sophisticated software programmes, the stored information can now be analysed effectively. In parallel with work-intensive screening methods, which involve many laboratory experiments, scientists are increasingly relying on computer-based methods.
