Pig and Cheminformatics

Rajarshi Guha about Pig Latin:

While the implementation of such code [SMARTS matching and pharmacophore searching] is pretty straightforward, it’s still pretty heavyweight compared to say, performing SMARTS matching in a database via SQL. On the other hand, being able to perform these tasks in Pig Latin, lets us write much simpler code that can be integrated with other non-cheminformatics code in a flexible manner.

Extensibility over compactness.
