Overview

As described in the project requirements in section DbNPFeatures#Modules_overview, dbNP employs 'clean data modules' to store omics data. Recall the general dbNP architecture:

The clean data modules store specific omics data and serve them via the clean data layer. The contract of this layer is described in the functional specifications: DbNPFeatures#Biomarker_view. The first drafts of this layer are written, but are not published yet (the chosen technology is RESTful services with JSON messages).
