The theme of CS545G is the databases that are being constructed in academic and commercial life-sciences organizations to manage genome data. Presentation, demonstrations, and analysis devoted to database issues specific to their use to encode molecular-biology information, including DNA sequence, protein sequence and structure, gene expression, and other functional-genomics data. Emphasis is on representation and integration of the many diverse data sources, and their presentation for biomedical and pharmaceutical researchers. Issues: data structures and ontologies, cross referencing, quality control and error detection, search processes, suitability of different DBMSs, data provenance, and privacy protection for patient-derived information. Introduction and discussion by the instructors and presentations by experts from commercial and research organizations.
