COMputational BRidges to EXperiments DataBase COMBREX-DB


Provides information about experimentally determined protein function, relationships among proteins of unknown function and various types of experimental data. COMBREX-DB contains information on approximately 3.3 million known and predicted proteins from over 1000 completely sequenced bacterial and archaeal genomes. It can help users to identify those proteins whose experimental determination of function would be most informative for predicting function for other proteins within protein families. The database is searchable by gene names, descriptions, predictions, and identifiers.
