On Wednesday May 15th from 1pm to 5pm the John Crerar Library will be hosting a representative from BIOBASE. In a four hour tutorial Dr. Alexander Kaplun will be teaching about BIOBASE PROTEOME and BIOBASE TRANSFAC.
BIOBASE PROTEOME is a powerful ontology search query system, with specialized tools for gene set analysis and pathway visualization, allows scientists working with mammalian, yeast, and worm and plant species to quickly find answers to questions relevant to their research. A specialized custom sequence annotation tool allows scientists working with other species to extend predictive functions to newly sequenced or otherwise unidentified genomes.
BIOBASE TRANSFAC is a knowledge-base containing published data on eukaryotic transcription factors, their experimentally-proven binding sites, and regulated genes.
