Over the last decade, the advances in the high-throughput omic technologies have given the possibility to profile tumor cells at different levels, fostering the discovery of new biological data and the proliferation of a large number of bio-technological databases. In this paper we describe a framework for enabling the interoperability among different biological data sources and for ultimately supporting expert users in the complex process of extraction, navigation and visualization of the
