BACKGROUND To identify as many different transcripts/genes in the Atlantic salmon genome as possible, it is crucial to acquire good cDNA libraries from different tissues and developmental stages, their relevant sequences (ESTs or full length sequences) and attempt to predict function. Such libraries allow identification of a large number of different(More)
BACKGROUND The Atlantic salmon is an important aquaculture species and a very interesting species biologically, since it spawns in fresh water and develops through several stages before becoming a smolt, the stage at which it migrates to the sea to feed. The dramatic change of habitat requires physiological, morphological and behavioural changes to prepare(More)
This paper describes the outcome of a ''Workshop on Biological Macromolecular Structure Models'' held in November 2005 in which experimentalists and mod-elers discussed the best way to archive models of biological macromolecules. Background and Goals of the Workshop We have entered a new era in structural biology in which many methods will be used in(More)
Two more organisms from different taxonomic groups were added to a new version of the Integrated Sequence-Structure Database (ISSD). ISSD serves as an integrated source of sequence and structure information for the analysis of correlations between mRNA synonymous codon usage and three-dimensional structure of the encoded proteins. ISSD now holds 88(More)
We have constructed a non-homologous database, termed the Integrated Sequence-Structure Database (ISSD) which comprises the coding sequences of genes, amino acid sequences of the corresponding proteins, their secondary structure and straight phi,psi angles assignments, and polypeptide backbone coordinates. Each protein entry in the database holds the(More)
BACKGROUND Trace or chromatogram files (raw data) are produced by automatic nucleic acid sequencing equipment or sequencers. Each file contains information which can be interpreted by specialised software to reveal the sequence (base calling). This is done by the sequencer proprietary software or publicly available programs. Depending on the size of a(More)
By maintaining the Na(+) and K(+) transmembrane gradient mammalian Na,K-ATPase acts as a key regulator of neuronal electrotonic properties. Na,K-ATPase has an important role in synaptic transmission and memory formation. Accumulation of beta-amyloid (Aβ) at the early stages of Alzheimer's disease is accompanied by reduction of Na,K-ATPase functional(More)
SUMMARY Functional modules within protein sequences are often extracted by consensus sequence patterns representing a linear motif; however, other functional regions may only be described by combined features such as amino acid composition, profiles of amino acid properties and randomly distributed short sequence motifs. If only a small number of functional(More)
MOTIVATION The value of information greatly increases if stored in databases. The objective was to construct a multi-purpose database system primarily designed to store and provide access to three-dimensional structures of biological molecules including theoretical models. RESULTS A dictionary defining data format and structure for three-dimensional(More)
