Welcome to the Database Research Group at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor!
The database group at Michigan has a long and illustrious history. Some of our better known graduates include E.F. Codd, Mike Stonebraker, David J. DeWitt, and more.
Our current work is focused on building the data management infrastructure for the twenty-first century, with particular emphasis on issues surrounding the internet (including XML, text mining, database design, data integration, security), main memory databases, object-relational databases, mobile databases, on issues of data warehousing and data mining, and on the effective integration and efficient querying of biological data. In particular, we have a very strong bioinformatics effort.
