Many applications require the ability to manipulate sequences of data, We motivate the importance of sequence query processing, and present aframework for the optimization of sequence queries based on several novel techniques. These include query transformations, optimizations that utilize meta-data, and caching of intermediate results. We present a bottom-up algorithm that generates an efficient query evaluation plan based on cost estimates. This work also identifies a number of directions in which future research can be directed.
