The Bingo2 project "Knowledge Discovery For and By Inductive Queries in post-genomic applications" ANR-07-MDCO-014 is a four-year project launched in January 2008 and completed in December 2011. Bingo2 is funded by the French National Research Agency ANR and it is a follow-up of the Bingo project (2004-2007) funded by ACI Masse de Données. Within the inductive database framework, Bingo2 aims at designing and developing new methods and tools for supporting knowledge discovery from databases in order to avoid the "pattern flooding which follows data flooding" that is unfortunately so typical in exploratory KDD processes. The discovery and the use of (partial) domain knowledge in post-genomic area is the main thread of our work.
Bingo2 tackles the following open problems: (1) how (partial) domain knowledge can be discovered and used for knowledge discovery in post-genomics, (2) designing generic methods to gather and mine heterogeneous data sources and (3) providing KDD scenarios in molecular biology.
Bingo2 joins four partners gathering computer science and biological skills.
