In this chapter the process of building a relational database is explained, using a real-world biological example as a case study. The entire process is covered, from deciding which information to store and how to design the database schema, through to the implementation of the database using the MySQL relational database management system (RDBMS). Retrieval of information from the database, using increasingly complex queries, is also explained. Alternatives to MySQL are also discussed.

Keywords:   batabases, data modelling, database design, MySQL, SQL, RDBMSs, bioinformatics
