CS 730R: Advanced Database Systems

and their application to biomedical problems

Spring 2011

Fusheng Wang

Center for Comprehensive Informatics


New applications and data types:

Spatial data and temporal data

XML data over the Web

Complex biomedical data

Semantic Web and

“Big data”

What’s the limitation of RDBMS and SQL? At what
extent can they can be extended?

What are the effective models, languages and
indexing methods to support new data types?

How to manage and integrate biomedical data?

Semantics enabled data management?

How to scale DBMSs (if possible) to manage and
query big data? How about MapReduce?
