Hi ! i am a still new to bioinformatics.currently i am working on developing a database with the intergration of xml.as far as i understand, most of the databanks has its own data(heterogenous format).what are the fields that i must know in order to develop a database?how can i retrieve biological data from these databanks.i only know things at the surface level.many of the articles are very confusing.as far as i am concern there are things like protein sequence and DNA sequence.where can i get a sample database table containing field for such entity??
my plan of architecture (architecture for the system which i am going to develop) consist of a database which will be built using Oracle 9i, XML and SAX parser for converting various formats into a unified format plus PERL for communicating with the bio databank's servers.
please advise if this is feasible or redundant otherwise.i am pretty much perplexed in determing the right data types for my database.please guide me and i am not asking anyone of you to develop the systems for me.i am willing to learn and develop concurrently with advice from you.
please help me.
