Synthetic biology


  • Entrez cross-database search
  • ExPASy Proteomics Server is dedicated to the analysis of protein sequences and structures as well as 2-D PAGE
  • UniProt (Universal Protein Resource) is the world's most comprehensive catalog of information on proteins. It is a central repository of protein sequence and function created by joining the information contained in Swiss-Prot, TrEMBL, and PIR
  • DIP catalogs experimentally determined interactions between proteins, it combines information from a variety of sources to create a single, consistent set of protein-protein interactions
  • KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
  • BIND - Biomolecular Interaction Network Database
  • SCOP: Structural Classification of Proteins
  • InterProScan: sequence search
  • Pfam search
  • PROSITE is a database of protein families and domains. It consists of biologically significant sites, patterns and profiles that help to reliably identify to which known protein family (if any) a new sequence belongs
  • PRINTS is a compendium of protein fingerprints
  • MetaBase is a user-contributed list of all the biological databases available on the internet
