The Protein Information Resource: an integrated public resource of functional annotation of proteins
The Protein Information Resource (PIR) serves as an integrated public resource of functional annotation of protein data to support genomic/proteomic research and scientific discovery. The PIR, in collaboration with the Munich Information Center for Protein Sequences (MIPS) and the Japan International Protein Information Database (JIPID), produces the PIR-International Protein Sequence Database (PSD), the major annotated protein sequence database in the public domain, containing about 250 000 proteins. To improve protein annotation and the coverage of experimentally validated data, a bibliography submission system is developed for scientists to submit, categorize and retrieve literature information. Comprehensive protein information is available from i ProClass, which includes family classification at the superfamily, domain and motif levels, structural and functional features of proteins, as well as crossreferences to over 40 biological databases. To provide timely and comprehensive p...
