Web-based Database Query Interface

The client requested the development of a web-based interface to query an internal database of genomic information.  They had a relatively clear idea of what they wanted, so we were able to make a very quick technical proposal, with mock-up of the web pages that would be produced.

The client's database was in MySQL, which was a new system to us at the time.  We built the interface using Microsoft Visual Basic, employing a MySQL ADO.Net driver and standard ASPX design to provide a simple web-client interface.  The project required about 20 hours of effort.

To the right is a demo of the web form used to query the database.  Below is an example result output.  Later in the project we included additional output options, such as the ability to save the results to a simple text file.
