ExPASy Molecular Biology Server

The Expert Protein Analysis System (ExPASy) is a metasite associated with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. The site focuses on the study and analysis of proteins, and includes a number of databases and analytical tools. A new Reference link provides a helpful description of the resources on the site; users may wish to view this to determine what tools are most useful to them. A number of...
New York Structural Biology Center

The New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC), opened December 12, 2002, houses the "largest and most advanced cluster of high-field research magnets in the United States" for probing the three-dimensional structures of proteins. This Web site offers news, relevant publications, photos of the facility, and other information about NYSBC, a collaborative effort of nine prominent East Cost research...
BMRB: BioMagResBank

This Web site features BioMagResBank (BMRB); the free public access depository for NMR results from peptides, proteins, and nucleic acids. Biochemists can find a collection of computer software applications used for biomolecular NMR such as Aqua and NMRView, as well as a Library of NMR Software. The website provides NMR data file conversion tools including the STAR conversion handling tool, which...
Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2005

While it may not seem like the most enthralling piece of reading, the recently released proposed budget of the United States government for the fiscal year 2005 is an important document. As presented here, visitors may download the entire budget (but it should be noted that it is 63 MB), or elect to view specific sections dealing with various agencies, such as the Department of Agriculture, the...

The Universal Protein Resource, UniProt, "is the world's most comprehensive catalog of information on proteins." The Getting Started, Searches/Tools, and Databases sections are the true gems of the site. After getting acquainted with the trove of information and data offered by UniProt, users can then begin to search for various protein sequences and data collection via a well-organized searchable...
UCSD-San Diego Supercomputer Center/University of Massachusetts: Protein Explorer

While certainly a fantastic educational resource, the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) website is definitely geared towards those with a background in or who are currently studying proteins. The site, authored by Eric Martz of the University of Massachusetts, offers several flash-enabled movies that allow viewers to study protein molecules from a three dimensional point of view. As the site...
The Human Protein Atlas

Launched in Sweden in 2003, the Human Protein Atlas is an open-access database that was created to, "map all the human proteins in cells, tissues, and organs using integration of various omics technologies, including antibody-based imaging, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, transcriptomics and systems biology." This resource is intended to be used by researchers and educators in academia as well...
