Dear All,

during my work I had to use RDBMS and EMBOSS.

I collected my scripts and experiments into a package called Modular
BioSQL, which has different features:
-- Modular RDB realization of different biological databases allows
   fine-tuning with increased performance.
-- Storing result sets in RDBMS allows more accurate, more comfortable
   analysis using SQL.

-- User interaction with the RDBMS (installation, loading up and querying
   data) does not need programming skills.
-- Light weight RDB interaction with analysis packages (only EMBOSS is
-- Optimalized loading of flat files into the RDBMS.
-- Using 'fixed value arrays' (*_ref tables) results in both smaller data
   size (smaller than the flat file) and smaller index
   size increasing the performance (theoretically both the uploading and
   querying performance).
-- Relatively easily extendable to implement and handle databases other
   than the currently realized.

You may think I suggest Modular BioSQL as a replacement of BioSQL. I do
not think so! For details, please visit my web site, and send
comments and suggestions:
