Structuring Structural Biology with PostgreSQL
Reece Hart, Scientist, Genentech, Inc.

Track: PostgreSQL
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.
