AbstractThis thesis reports on the development of a novel comprehensive database (Dragon Database of Genes Implicated in Esophageal Cancer, DDEC) as an integrated knowledge database aimed at representing a gateway to esophageal cancer related data. More importantly, it illustrates how the biocurated genes in the database may represent a reliable starting point for divulging transcriptional regulation, diagnostic markers and the biology related to esophageal cancer.
