Resources for Medicinal Chemistry Researchers
Bioinformatics Research Project Links
BLAST: Basic Local Alignment Search Tool
BLAST finds regions of similarity between biological sequences. The program compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases and calculates the statistical significance.
ExPASy: SIB Bioinformatics Resource Portal
Provides access to scientific databases and software tools (i.e., resources) in different areas of life sciences including proteomics, genomics, phylogeny, systems biology, population genetics, transcriptomics etc. On this portal you find resources from many different SIB groups as well as external institutions.
Resource of protein sequence and functional information.
KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
KEGG is a database resource for understanding high-level functions and utilities of the biological system, such as the cell, the organism and the ecosystem, from molecular-level information, especially large-scale molecular datasets generated by genome sequencing and other high-throughput experimental technologies.
OMIM is a comprehensive, authoritative compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes.
RSCB Protein Data Bank
This resource is powered by the Protein Data Bank archive-information about the 3D shapes of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies that helps students and researchers understand all aspects of biomedicine and agriculture, from protein synthesis to health and disease.
First Glance in Jmol
The easiest way to look at the 3D structures of proteins, DNA, RNA, and their complexes.
BRENDA is one of the most comprehensive enzyme information sources in life science, with convenient and easy searchable data extracted from the primary literature:
classification and nomenclature
reaction and specificity
functional and kinetic parameters
enzyme structure and stability
supplemented with text-mining tools for:
--Source/Tissues and Localization
--Disease-related enzyme information
--Kinetic values and expressions
Clustal Omega is a new multiple sequence alignment program that uses seeded guide trees and HMM profile-profile techniques to generate alignments between three or more sequences.
