We introduce the GeWare data warehouse platform for the integrated analysis of clinical information, microarray data and annotations within large biomedical research studies. Clinical data is obtained from a commercial study management system while publicly available data is integrated using a mediator approach. The platform utilizes a generic approach to manage different types of annotations. We outline the overall architecture of the platform, its implementation as well as the main processing and analysis workflows.
