The article presents information on the Investigation-Study-Assay (ISA) Commons research which was initiated by publishers and researchers for streamlining data sharing between different databases. The biology researchers of systems exchange sequences, models and software codes based on the interactions in the genes and proteins but faces problem in creating software for effective exchange of such models. A focus is on cloud computing methods used in data sharing and sharable workflows.
