The TreeDet (Tree Determinant) Server is the first release of a system designed to integrate results from methods that predict functional sites in protein families. These methods take into account the relation between sequence conservation and evolutionary importance. TreeDet fully analyses the space of protein sequences in either user-uploaded or(More)
MOTIVATION The evolution of proteins cannot be fully understood without taking into account the coevolutionary linkages entangling them. From a practical point of view, coevolution between protein families has been used as a way of detecting protein interactions and functional relationships from genomic information. The most common approach to inferring(More)
UNLABELLED We have implemented in a single package all the features required for extracting, visualizing and manipulating fully conserved positions as well as those with a family-dependent conservation pattern in multiple sequence alignments. The program allows, among other things, to run different methods for extracting these positions, combine the results(More)
In recent years there has been an incredible explosion of computational studies of molecular biology systems, particularly those related to the analysis of the structure and organization of molecular networks, as the initial steps toward the possible simulation of the behavior of simple cellular systems. Needless to say, this task will not be possible(More)
The mitotic spindle is an essential molecular machine involved in cell division, whose composition has been studied extensively by detailed cellular biology, high-throughput proteomics, and RNA interference experiments. However, because of its dynamic organization and complex regulation it is difficult to obtain a complete description of its molecular(More)
MOTIVATION Determining the interaction partners among protein/domain families poses hard computational problems, in particular in the presence of paralogous proteins. Available approaches aim to identify interaction partners among protein/domain families through maximizing the similarity between trimmed versions of their phylogenetic trees. Since(More)
Solving relevant biological problems requires answering complex questions. Addressing such questions traditionally implied the design of time-consuming experimental procedures which most of the time are not accessible to average-sized laboratories. The current trend is to move towards a multidisciplinary approach integrating both theoretical knowledge and(More)
