What is Expasy database?

Expasy is an online bioinformatics resource operated by the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. The individual resources (databases, web-based and downloadable software tools) are hosted in a decentralised way by different groups of the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics and partner institutions.

What is the Expasy tool in bioinformatics?

It is an extensible and integrative portal which provides access to over 160 databases and software tools, developed by SIB Groups and supporting a range of life science and clinical research domains, from genomics, proteomics and structural biology, to evolution and phylogeny, systems biology and medical chemistry.

What are the components of UniProt consortium?

UniProt is comprised of four major components, each optimized for different uses: the UniProt Knowledgebase, the UniProt Reference Clusters, the UniProt Archive and the UniProt Metagenomic and Environmental Sequences database.

What is Expasy translate tool?

Translate is a tool which allows the translation of a nucleotide (DNA/RNA) sequence to a protein sequence.

Which tool is accessed by ExPASy platform?

The protease digestibility prediction tool in ExPASy is called PeptideCutter,8 which can be accessed directly at http://web.expasy.org/peptide_cutter/.

Why is UniProt used?

The Universal Protein Resource (UniProt) is a comprehensive resource for protein sequence and annotation data. EMBL-EBI and SIB together used to produce Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL, while PIR produced the Protein Sequence Database (PIR-PSD).

Is a protein structure database?

In biology, a protein structure database is a database that is modeled around the various experimentally determined protein structures. The aim of most protein structure databases is to organize and annotate the protein structures, providing the biological community access to the experimental data in a useful way.

Which is a published research paper using multalin?

How do I start multalin from data entry box?

One simply enters one’s sequences into the data entry box using FASTA, EMBL-SwissProt, or Genbank formats and hits “start Multalign” to run the program with the default parameters. (Users have the option to tweak parameters related to alignment and data presentation.)
