Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis work is to evaluate efficient storage and querying techniques forstoring and querying XML based Bioinformatics data. Many XML based formats areavailable for representing biological data.Presently, many data storage tools along with strong query techniques are in use forhandling XML data. These are categorized into three major types, Relational databases(RDBMS), Native XML databases and XML enabled databases.The test is performed on XML based SBML Data (level 2 version 1). Bioinformatics datahas been stored in different types of databases with the goal of evaluating theperformance of XPATH (Native XML Database, XEDB) and SQL (RDBMS).In case of RDBMS data has been mapped into tables. In case of Native XML databasesand XEDB data has been stored as a whole in an XML variable. Furthermore, severalXPATH is performed on Native XML database and on XEDB. SQL is performed onRDBMS.Our conclusion is that, the performance of XPATH on Native XML database is betterthan that of XEDB. Furthermore, when data is stored in RDBMS, SQL performed bestfor querying specific information.
