We demonstrate iMONDRIAN, a component of the MONDRIAN annotation management system. Distinguishing features of MONDRIAN are (i) the ability to annotate sets of values (ii) the annotation-aware query algebra. On top of that, iMONDRIAN offers an intuitive visual interface to annotate and query scientific databases. In this demonstration, we consider Gene Ontology (GO), a publicly available biological database. Using this database we show (i) the creation of annotations through the visual interface (ii) the ability to visually build complex, annotation aware, queries (iii) the basic functionality for tracking annotation provenance. Our demonstration also provides a cheat window which shows the system internals and how visual queries are translated to annotation-aware algebra queries.
