Unfortunatly they are not, I have something like 30 tables, with I would say
10 to 15 fields per table.
The number of row per table is quite low, i think it won't exceed
500-1000/table. But I may sometimes have to search into dna sequences
(around 5000 atcg characters in any order), so that is quite heavy. Maybe
for that field a fulltext index would be helpful?
Thanks for your help,
