OLAP is a powerful tool that is widely used by the business community to
analyze large financial data sets. Despite the big data sets found in modern

open source tools provided by the JPivot project, and extend them to handle

large genomic sequence databases. As an application we apply these tools to
browse and analyze the iProClass database of over over 2m protein sequences.
