Protein Bioinformatics and Community Resources
11–12 August 2014
Wellcome Genome Campus, UK
Many databases exist that provide information on particular classes of proteins. The majority of these databases focus on curating fundamental molecular data about proteins, often linking sequence, structure and function features relevant to a broad range of fields that include molecular biology, biomedicine and biotechnology. As new data emerges and data is increasingly being integrated for greater impact and predictive power, we aim to bring these diverse community resources together to explore how interactions with each other could improve all and contribute more effectively to users. The retreat was organised to help define the state-of-the-art in sequence classification, nomenclature, and other relevant features relevant to protein database resources and share best practices for improving information content and dissemination.
