This talk will introduce the audience to the the challenges of mining biological data and discuss features of Postgres that make this task possibile. Using Unison, a data warehouse developed at Genentech, as an example, I will talk about using Postgres to structure, store and search biological data for the benefit of a computational biologist. The talk will include examples of some practical applications.
