MOTIVATION Large-scale genome projects generate a rapidly increasing number of sequences, most of them biochemically uncharacterized. Research in bioinformatics contributes to the development of methods for the computational characterization of these sequences. However, the installation and application of these methods require experience and are time… (More)
Bacteria belonging to the class Mollicutes were among the first ones to be selected for complete genome sequencing because of the minimal size of their genomes and their pathogenicity for humans and a broad range of animals and plants. At this time six genome sequences have been publicly released (Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Ureaplasma… (More)
With the completion of the genome sequence of Methano-coccus jannaschii (Bult et al., 1996), computational analysis has revealed a number of interesting predicted functions for this organism. Although the success rate of the initial prediction was <40%, due to a conservative attitude towards possible over-interpretation (Venter, 1996), additional efforts to… (More)
ProteomeBinders is a new European consortium aiming to establish a comprehensive resource of well-characterized affinity reagents, including but not limited to antibodies, for analysis of the human proteome. Given the huge diversity of the proteome, the scale of the project is potentially immense but nevertheless feasible in the context of a pan-European or… (More)
UNLABELLED AliasServer provides services that facilitate the assembly of data or datasets that make use of different identifiers for refering to the same protein. This resource relies on a database which contains, for a given organism, a non-redundant list of protein sequences associated with a set of aliases. AVAILABILITY AliasServer is available as an… (More)
SUMMARY IPPRED is a web based server to infer protein-protein interactions through homology search between candidate proteins and those described as interacting. This simple inference allows to propose or to validate potential interactions. AVAILABILITY IPPRED is freely available at http://cbi.labri.fr/outils/ippred/.
