The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase)

(KBase) is an emerging software and data environment designed to enable researchers to collaboratively generate, test and share new hypotheses about gene and protein functions, perform large-scale analyses on a scalable computing infrastructure, and model interactions in microbes, plants, and their communities. KBase provides an open, extensible framework for secure sharing of data, tools, and scientific conclusions in predictive and systems biology.

FPbase A fluorescent protein database

FPbase is a free and open-source, community-editable database for fluorescent proteins (FPs) and their properties. The primary objective is to aggregate structured and searchable FP data that is of interest to the imaging community and FP developers. Each protein in the database has a dedicated page showing amino acid sequence, accession IDs (e.g. GenBank, UniProt), evolution lineages and mutations, fluorescence attributes, structural data, references that introduced or characterized the protein, and more. Excerpts from primary literature can be entered to store key information about a protein that is otherwise difficult to capture within the current database schema.
