Lessons learned by setting-up and querying the Protein Data Bank with DB2 - G08

Topic: 2012 NA

Subtopic: Cross Platform DB2 for z/OS & LUW



The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is a unique worldwide repository of structural data about proteins. The PDB data is available in XML format in order to provide flexibility, extensibility, and ease of data exchange in the biological research community. Analyzing data in the PDB can help explain diseases, develop new drugs, or understand the interactions between different proteins. However, one of the key challenges is to efficiently store and query this information to find and extract information and correlations of interest. This presentation describes how to use the hybrid capabilities of DB2 - relational and pureXML features - to manage and analyze PDB data.
