    I’m very excited about the potential for CouchDB as a solution for technical and business problems in life sciences. The ability to rapidly index reams of unstructured text and seamlessly replicate data for local access is huge.

    Hi Ron, I do think that the CouchDB model treats many scientific data management problems very well. In fact, I remember an entire workshop at Supercomputing 2009 discussing the need for flexible data storage, indexing/query, and sharing for life-sciences data. I have quite some experience solving similar problems in Physics, but am excited to hear more about specific problems in the life sciences.
