Dear Web Editors:

I am pleased to announce the draft of XML schema for
NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information)
data model.

NCBI database supports XML format that was directly
translated from its ASN.1 model into DTD.  I would
expect NCBI adopt XML Schema in next version. 

The XML schema presented conforms to NCBI's current
DTD version (as of May 2002), taking advantage of new
and better features of industry standard. However, in
order to make it compatible with status quo, type
derivation and substitution capabilities in XML Schema
weren't adopted. 

The downloadable at http://www.kaiseryang.com/bio/db
includes 31 xsd files (one of which is the 'main' to
include submodules) and 6 sample xml bio-sequence
files. Their syntax has been validated with XSV and BM
SQC. The semantics was checked against those six test
XML documents.

I would like to solicit comments.


H. Kaiser Yang
