Proteome Databases

  • Amos Bairoch
Part of the Principles and Practice book series (PRINCIPLES)


The awareness that protein and DNA sequence data are essential to the understanding of biological systems is now well established in the life science community. This community is progressively becoming conscious that this is also true of additional information about protein expression, post-translational modifications, tertiary structure and, of course, function. All of this knowledge needs to be encapsulated in various databases.
