Software tools for genomic researches like homology search are very useful and have contributed on the progress of the genomic researches. However, these tools are not designed directly toward scientific discovery and more discovery-oriented software tools are strongly expected to assist scientific discovery in genomic researches. We have designed and developed a multistrategic and discovery-oriented system Genomic Hypothesis Creator by introducing two notions: view on data and view space on data. With these newly defined notions, we describe a View Designer, a component of Genomic Hypothesis Creator, which dynamically creates new views on data and searches a view space for more appropriate views. A good view obtained from Genomic Hypothesis Creator makes it possible for us to understand the data and eventually attain to the goal of discovery. Genomic Hypothesis Creator can be extended by adding user’s own views on data and hypothesis generators into the system with plug-in interfaces. Therefore it would be feasible to apply this system to other problems than genomic researches.
