To maximize the value of genome sequences they need to be integrated with other types of biological data and with each other.

The recently determined vertebrate genome sequences of human and mouse are so large that building the infrastructure to manage these datasets is a major challenge. This article reviews the database systems and tools for analysis that have so far been developed to address this.
