Database systems provide an environment for storage and retrieval of both structured and semi-structured data.
Such systems were originally designed for use in business-type applications. Today, however, they are being utilized in many other application domains, including scientific computing, networking, and bioinformatics. Research topics at Yale include transaction management, data warehousing, Web-scale databases, real-time systems, multimedia systems, approximate queries, and data mining.
