<DIV></DIV>&gt;Hi all, many thanks for your overwelhming responses to 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;my simple question. I am trying to get into data 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;warehousing also (from just data analysis) and I was 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;thinking of what to learn for datawarehousing in 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Bioinformatics. That is why I posed this question.....

<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; -&gt; Hi, I would like to know if RDBMS (Relational 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; Data 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; -&gt; Base Management Systems) is extensively used in 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; -&gt; Bioinformatics Data Bases. If it indeed true, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; what is 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; -&gt; the most suited RDBMS, Oracle? 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; I believe that NCBI uses SQLserver for some 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; things, and MySQL has 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; been used by several of the public projects 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; (ENSEMBL, for one). 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; I use PostgreSQL because of it's support for an 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; object/relational 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; data model. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; I don't know of a project using Oracle but there 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; must be some out there.

<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; I'm not sure what distinguishes one database as 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; being better for 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; bioinformatics as a whole; it depends an awful lot 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; on what you're 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; doing...
