[…] on the schemas of the individual data sources (reddy et al., ). the data transferred to central repository is collected, integrated, stored and made available for search and presentation. (e.g., biowarehouse, lee et al., ; atlas, shah et al., ). the distributed model includes federation and mediation approaches. in federation approach the data is left in the respective fully functional […]
