The database group’s research is focused on building
the data management infrastructure for the twenty-first
century, with particular emphasis on issues surrounding
the Web, including text mining, data integration,
information extraction, data sharing, and security. We have
a strong emphasis on database usability. Our approach is
to understand at a fundamental level what it is about the
data model and representation that make it hard to use
In addition, we have a very strong bio-informatics effort, with particular emphasis on the effective integration and efficient querying of biological data.
