How is one expected to tackle the many genomic and proteomic puzzles in the life sciences today? Well, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have computer scientists as friends. (And by friends, I mean “people who graciously make their analysis tools freely available online.”) The website for the bioinformatics group in the department of computer science at the University College London is a virtual gold mine for genomic and proteomic tools. Under the headings of protein-structure prediction, protein sequence analysis, genome analysis, protein-structure classification, transmembrane protein modeling, and biological applications of data-mining and machine-learning technologies, there is a total of 15 analysis tools. So whether you’re in need of a metal binding residue prediction or a search engine to comb through scientific literature for you, head over to this wonderful site.
