The rapid pace at which genomic and proteomic data is being generated necessitates the development of tools and resources for managing data that allow integration of information from disparate sources. The Human Protein Reference Database (http://www.hprd.org) is a web-based resource based on open source technologies for protein information about several(More)
Human Protein Reference Database (HPRD) is an object database that integrates a wealth of information relevant to the function of human proteins in health and disease. Data pertaining to thousands of protein-protein interactions, posttranslational modifications, enzyme/substrate relationships, disease associations, tissue expression, and subcellular(More)
We have developed NetPath as a resource of curated human signaling pathways. As an initial step, NetPath provides detailed maps of a number of immune signaling pathways, which include approximately 1,600 reactions annotated from the literature and more than 2,800 instances of transcriptionally regulated genes - all linked to over 5,500 published articles.(More)
Recent emergence of new mass spectrometry techniques (e.g. electron transfer dissociation, ETD) and improved availability of additional proteases (e.g. Lys-N) for protein digestion in high-throughput experiments raised the challenge of designing new algorithms for interpreting the resulting new types of tandem mass (MS/MS) spectra. Traditional MS/MS(More)
In large scale mass spectrometry-based phosphoproteomics, a current bottleneck is the unambiguous assignment of the phosphorylation site within the peptide. An additional problem is that it has been reported that under conditions wherein peptide ions are collisionally activated the phosphate group may migrate to a nearby phosphate group acceptor, thus(More)
The use of high-throughput DNA sequencing and proteomic methods has led to an unprecedented increase in the amount of genomic and proteomic data. Application of computing technologies and development of computational tools to analyze and present these data has not kept pace with the accumulation of information. Here, we discuss the use of different database(More)
BACKGROUND The explosion in biological information creates the need for databases that are easy to develop, easy to maintain and can be easily manipulated by annotators who are most likely to be biologists. However, deployment of scalable and extensible databases is not an easy task and generally requires substantial expertise in database development. (More)
Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) has gained a lot of attention during the last few years. On the one hand, there exists a large number of applications that can benefit from it. On the other hand, HTR is similar to Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR). Thus, modelling techniques can be easily adapted and most of the already available ASR tools can be used to(More)
The effect of temperature and sex on spatial distribution of Drosophila melanogaster adults was studied in a specially designed apparatus. It was observed that individuals tend to aggregate in sections of the sphere independently of sex and temperature. Nevertheless, decrease in temperature increase aggregation. The mobility of both males and females(More)
