UNLABELLED Physico-chemical properties of amino acids can be used to study protein sequence profiles, folding and function. We collated 242 properties for the 20 naturally occurring amino acids and created a dataset. The dataset is available as a database named APDbase( Amino acid Physico-chemical properties Data base). The database can be queried using either key words describing physico-chemical properties or pre-assigned database index number. The database contains corresponding references for each property value and facilitates deposition of new property values for processing and inclusion in the database. AVAILABILITY The database is available for free at http://www.rfdn.org/bioinfo/APDbase.php.
