I need to store our NGS data in a database. Are their any open source solutions? I would prefer not to design the database and write all of the import/analysis scripts! A relational database solution would be preferable.
Thanks for your help
Sorry for the lack of clarity. I have no intention of storing the reads in a database. I would like to store variants, annotate the variants and the supply users with a web interface to view the variants.
Thanks for your clarification. If you want an open source database for storing and displaying variants on the web, then the Leiden Open Variation Database might fit the bill. They "provide a flexible, freely available tool for Gene-centered collection and display of DNA variations."
Also, check out the Human Variation Database. They provide "an open-source (PostgreSQL) database for the storage and analysis of thousands of next-generation sequencing variations, a Java API to perform common functions, such as generation of standard experimental reports and graphical summaries of modifications to genes, and libraries to allow adopters of the database to quickly develop their own queries."
Your question (once clarified) was actually asked before on Biostar. See the suggestion there to adopt Ensembl's variation schema and API.
