Abstract: In this thesis we will investigate how a popular new way of distributed computing called service orientation can be used within the field of Knowledge Discovery. We critically investigate its principles and present models for developing withing this paradigm. We then apply this model to create a web service caled Fantom, that mines subgroups in a ranked list of identifiers, based on their score. The descriptions of these subgroups are done in ontologies to provide the scientist a description in a standardized and familiar language. Finally, Fantom is tested on two different data sets from the field of life-sciences; one concerning gene data, the other concerning SNP data.
