Stores and manages proteomics data. 2D-PAGE may be used to publish two-dimensional electrophoretic proteomics data, and also may be accessed by external users who want to compare their own data with those in the databases. Users can introduce mass spectra into the database, which allows the searching of peptide mass fingerprints against their own protein sequence databases. Currently, the 2D-PAGE proteome database at MPI for Infection Biology is serving as one of the working standards, together with the SWISS-2DPAGE standard, within the European network project on human pathogenic bacteria.
