D14 - New lessons learned by setting-up and querying the Protein Data Bank with DB2

Topic: Cross Platform DB2 for z/OS & LUW

Subtopic: 2014

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 explains how to use various capabilities including BLU of DB2 to manage and analyze PDB data using and comparing DB2 v9.7, v10.1 and v10.5 for LUW.
