Express JS Basics, When Do We Learn About Databases?

Hi guys I'm getting a little confused with the Express JS Basics tutorials. So I have just had a look through all of the chapters and I'm unable to find anything about Databases and Express? Surely this is one of the most important aspects to this framework isn't it?

Can somebody link me to the chapter about this if there is one?

Databases aren't "naturally" part of Express so I'm not sure Treehouse covers it. Here is a really great tutorial on Express that will show you how to connect your app with MongoDB: http://cwbuecheler.com/web/tutorials/2013/node-express-mongo/

If you've done the course already you can probably skip to Part 3.
