  • Patent number: 6408308
    Abstract: A biomolecular expression information processing system has procedures and tables that store abundance datasets and hybridization data. The tables also store information identifying a microarray technology type for each hybridization and microarray design information for each microarray technology type. The microarray design information includes technology data that specifies global characteristics of each microarray, and array element data that specifies characteristics of array elements in each microarray instance of the microarray technology type. The procedures process the abundance datasets in accordance with the microarray design information associated with each such abundance dataset. The system stores technology data for multiple distinct microarray technology types and stores array element data for multiple microarray designs of a single technology type.

  • Patent number: 6363399
    Abstract: Disclosed is a relational database system for storing biomolecular sequence information in a manner that allows sequences to be catalogued and searched according to association with one or more projects for obtaining full-length biomolecular sequences from shorter sequences. The relational database has sequence records containing information identifying one or more projects to which each of the sequence records belong. Each project groups together one or more biomolecular sequences generated during work to obtain a full-length gene sequence from a shorter sequence. The computer system has a user interface allowing a user to selectively view information regarding one or more projects. The relational database also provides interfaces and methods for accessing and manipulating and analyzing project-based information.
