Bioinformatics Adventures in Database Research
Informatics has helped launch molecular biology into the genomic era. It appears certain that informatics will remain a major contributor to molecular biology in the post-genome era. We discuss here data integration and datamining in bioinformatics, as well as the role that database theory played in these topics. We also describe LIMS as a third key topic in bioinformatics where advances in database system and theory can be very relevant. 1 The Great Challenges in Bioinformatics Bioinformatics is key to genome projects. The main challenges are to improve the content and utility of databases, to develop better tools for data generation, capture, and annotation, to develop and improve tools and databases for functional studies, to develop and improve tools for representing and analysing sequence similarity and variation, and to create mechanisms to support effective approaches for producing robust software that can be widely shared. In the 1990s, a lot of databases were produced by the n...
