FlyMine (www.flymine.org) is an integrated database of genomics and proteomics data for Drosophila and other insects. It includes a wide range of data, made available via a flexible web interface. Users can run pre-defined ‘template’ queries, design their own queries and operate on lists of data.

InterMine (www.intermine.org) is software developed to enable FlyMine and is now being used in other projects to create similar databases.

Relational databases provide enormous power for programmers to store and query large volumes of data. Web access to databases for use by biologists is often limited to performing lookups for identifiers or keywords and displaying reports. This talk will introduce the power of databases for data manipulation and show how FlyMine/InterMine attempts to enable non-programmers to benefit from this power.

This talk is part of the Bioinformatics jounal club for the -omics series.
