Database Systems

Research Areas -> Software Systems -> Database Systems
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 and query.

In addition, we have a very strong bio-informatics effort, with particular emphasis on the effective integration and efficient querying of biological data.
