I don't know if this is an appropriate question for this forum. If not, I apologise in advance and won't ask questions of this nature again. If it is appropriate I look forward to an interesting answer.
Does anyone have any interesting ideas for how you might model in a database the conservation of genome positions in a genome. The obvious first thought is a table called Locus with one row per base in the genome and fields called Position, Chromosome and conservationScore.
That's a large database table for the human genome but can be indexed and should be a breeze for any enterprise db like mysql. However I was interested to learn any other perspectives and approaches. Sometimes when the solution is so obvious you don't think laterally enough.
