Abstract
We have developed a new way of accessing biological databases and bioinformatics applications on the Internet. This new service, bioinformatics wireless application protocol (BioWAP) service, which is accessible by mobile devices makes it possible to access bioinformatics services, where normal PC or personal digital assistant (PDA) connections are not feasible. The BioWAP service includes major biological databases and applications demonstrating a simple method of implementing WAP interfaces to uncompliant applications, i.e. the applications that are not WAP or Internet based. The BioWAP service can be browsed with any WAP terminal.
