Abstract
Rational drug design is an example where integrated access
to heterogeneous scientific data is urgently needed, as it be-
comes rapidly available due to new experimental and com-
putational techniques. This is currently problematic as data
is scattered over heterogeneous, mostly file-based legacy
databases, the data is erroneous, incomplete, and inconsis-
tent in representation and content. We have developed a
methodology, including metadata specification, data trans-
formation and software architecture, that supports data
analysis and preparation for building a data warehouse us-
ing object-oriented database technology. With this method-
ology the system ReLiBase has been realized, that allows
querying and visualization of the drug-design related data
