We report on a query language, called PROXIMAL, for the efficient specification of complex queries over biological sequences. We present a data model for asking complex and structured questions of biological sequences, and show how the query language can be used. In addition, we describe a visual query metaphor intended for a biologist-friendly front end to the PROXIMAL query language.
