I am interested in knowing more about support available to load data from public databases in Oracle database for life sciences databases technology.

Thank you,

    Oracle provides a variety of data loaders including the basic or standard SQL-Loader means of accessing data.

    If you have the Lion SRS system, Oracle and Lion have partnered for a SRS Gateway for Oracle users to access the data SRS assembles.

    Other options include External Tables, Streams, Oracle Data Mining's JDeveloper add-in for importing data, generic ODBC gateway and Transparent Gateways to all the major databases e.g. DB2, MS, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Having attempted to load some embl records using Oracle Warehouse builder 10.1 I was dissapointed to find;
    that on import of table, using the OWB designer, I get data "type unknown, column skipped", when it meets a CLOB.

    I was kind of hoping that it would not be phased by the presence of a LOB and it would just get on with it.
