Find Papers


In a relational database, everything becomes connected.  This means that a single piece of information coming from a given paper is connected to all the other entries for that paper.  Moreover, information - coming from many papers - can be selected and aggregated as needed.  The databases being used in this project include hundreds of tables containing thousands of columns.  Such a large system becomes essential when one wishes to capture and duplicate the complexity of biology.

Getting information into a database is hard work, getting it out is wonderfully easy - even for a beginner.  Most of the database screens in the software use a query by example (QBE) interface that requires little more than typing in simple requests and pressing a Retrieve button.  Numerous worked examples and detailed instructions can be found in the recent reports and software releases.
