Databases are at the core of modern data analysis. Efficient computation often involves moving the computation into the database. At the eScience Center we help scientists to pick the best data storage and processing methods for the task at hand. We work on new ways to index data for efficient retrieval and on improved performance of existing database systems.

The types of databases we deal with at the eScience Center are as varied as the types of research being done with them and include relational databases, graph databases, (distributed) search engines, geographical information systems and memory stores.
