Sequence Databases and Their Uses – The Mother Lode

image

We now turn to the dominant, most mature and most successful application of string algorithms in computational biology: the building and searching of databases holding molecular sequence data.1 We start by illustrating some uses of sequence databases and by describing a bit about existing databases. The impact of database searching (and expectations of greater future impact), explains a large part of the interest among biologists for algorithms that search, manipulate and compare strings. In turn, the biologists’ activities have stimulated additional interest in string algorithms among computer ...
