Structuring Structural Biology with PostgreSQL
Reece Hart, Scientist, Genentech, Inc.
Date: Thursday, July 29
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Salon C
Hart describes the application of PostgreSQL to the development of
Unison, a database for integrating and mining computational structural
biology data. In this presentation, he will 1) introduce some methods and goals of a
computational biologist, 2) skim over the Unison schema, 3) give a few
examples of how open source tools and Unison aid his goals, and 4) wrap up
some politics and issues with PostgreSQL per se and PostgreSQL in an
Oracle shop. Hart will convey both a few of the needs of computational
structural biology as well as the importance of PostgreSQL, Linux, Perl,
Apache, and other open source tools in addressing the problems he faces.
