Nucleotide sequence databases

Nucleotide and Protein sequence and structure databases The different types of databases in bioinformatics Organisation: flat files Relational databases Object-oriented databases Availability:

Publicly available, no restriction Available, but with copyright Accessible, but not downloadable Academic, but not freely available Commercial Curators: Large, public institution (EMBL, NCBI) Quasi-academic institute (Swiss institute of Bioinformatics, TIGR,) Academic group or scientists Commercial company

Identifiers and Accession numbers Identifier: string of letters and digits that somehow define the sequence or structure Example: TPIS_CHICK (Triose Phosphate Isomerase from chicken (gallus gallus) ) in SwissProt The identifier can change (based on the curator) Accession code: a string of letters and digits that uniquely identifies an entry in its

database. The accession number for TPIS_CHICK in Swissprot is P00940 Accession number should not changed!! Nucleotide sequence databases EMBL, GenBank, and DDBJ are the three primary nucleotide sequence databases EMBL GenBank DDBJ

Genbank An annotated collection of all publicly available nucleotide and proteins Set up in 1979 at the LANL (Los Alamos). Maintained since 1992 NCBI (Bethesda).

EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database An annotated collection of all publicly available nucleotide and protein sequences Created in 1980 at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg. Maintained since 1994 by EBI- Cambridge. s/ DDBJDNA Data Bank of Japan An annotated collection of all publicly available nucleotide and protein sequences Started, 1984 at the National Institute of

Genetics (NIG) in Mishima. Still maintained in this institute a team led by Takashi Gojobori. Sequence submission Data mainly direct submissions from the authors. Submissions through the Internet:

Web forms. Email. Sequences shared/exchanged between the 3 centers on a daily basis: The sequence content of the banks is identical. Derived databases

CUTG Codon usage tabulated from GenBank Genetic Codes Deviations from the standard genetic code in various organisms and organelles ode=c TIGR Gene Indices Organism-specific databases of EST and gene sequences UniGene Unified clusters of ESTs and full-length mRNA sequences

ASAP Alternative spliced isoforms Intronerator Introns and alternative splicing in C.elegans and C.briggsae Sequence Retrieval Tools Various tools to get sequences of interests from databases Entrez in NCBI SRS

for EMBL and other DBs Fetch in GCG package Seqret in EMBOSS Protein Databases General Sequence databases Protein properties Protein localization and targeting Protein sequence motifs and active sites Protein domain databases; protein classification Databases of individual protein families NCBI Protein database The NCBI Entrez Protein database Sequences from: SwissProt, the Protein Information Resource, the Protein Research Foundation, the Protein Data Bank, and translations from annotated coding regions in the GenBank and RefSeq databases. Protein sequence records in Entrez have links to precomputed protein BLAST alignments, protein structures, conserved protein domains, nucleotide sequences, genomes, and genes.

Swiss-Prot The Swiss-Protein Knowledgebase is a curated protein sequence database established in 1986. It provides a high level of annotation (such as the description of protein function, domains structure, post-translational modifications, variants, etc.), a minimal level of redundancy and high level of integration with other databases. Now, it is part of the Universal Protein Knowledgebase (a part of UniProt), a "one-stop shop" that allows easy access to all publicly available information of protein sequence

annotation. UniProt ( The Swiss-Prot, TrEMBL, and PIR protein database activities have united to form the Universal Protein Resource (UniProt) Uniprot Knowledgebase (UniprotKB): curated Sequence information, annotations, linked to other databases. Uniprot Reference Clusters (UniRef): removing

sequence redundancy by merging sequences that are 100%, 90% and 50%, no annotations, linked to Knowledgebase and UniParc records. Uniprot Archive (UniParc): history of sequences, no annotation, linked to source records. Trivia The shortest sequence is GWA_SEPOF (P83570): 2 amino acids, a Neuropeptide from cuttle fish. The longest sequence is TITIN_MOUSE (A2ASS6): 35213 amino acids, assembly and functioning of vertebrate striated muscles, defects cause myopathies.

Databases related to Proteomics Contain information obtained by 2D-PAGE: master images of the gels and description of identified proteins Examples: SWISS-2DPAGE, ECO2DBASE, Maize-2DPAGE, Sub2D, Cyano2DBase, etc. Format: composed of image and text files

Most 2D-PAGE databases are federated and use SWISS-PROT as a master index Mass Spectrometry (MS) database Database searching tips Look for links to Help or Examples Always check update dates Level of curation Try Boolean searches Be careful with UK/US spelling differences
