BCM Search Launcher
[Human Genome Center, Baylor College of Medicine] A collection of molecular biology-related search and analysis services available on the WWW. Currently connects to a general protein sequence, or protein pattern searches, species-specific protein sequence searches, nucleic acid sequence searches, multiple sequence alignments, pairwise sequence alignments, gene feature searches, sequence utilities, and protein secondary structure prediction.
BCM Search Launcher: General Protein Sequence/Pattern Searches
[Baylor College of Medicine] A site with multiple tools to search a protein sequence for patterns.
Bioinformatics and Biological Computing
[Weizmann Institute of Science] This is home for a wealth of tools, databases, and information in bioinformatics. There are servers in the areas of sequence analysis, proteomics, and genomics, as well as downloads and educational products. The Crown Human Genome Center is also part of this site.
This site is a portal to Canadian bioinformatics activities and home of the Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops, a bioinformatics training
program at the post-graduate level to address the current shortage of trained bioinformaticians in both industry
[UCSD San Diego Supercomputer Center] The WorkBench allows biologists to search many popular protein and nucleic acid sequence databases. Database searching is integrated with access to a wide variety of analysis and modeling tools, all within a point and click interface that eliminates file format compatibility problems.
The Brutlag Bioinformatics Group
[Stanford University] This group is interested in the
problems of predicting biological function of genes and proteins from their primary sequence (sometimes known as functional genomics), predicting structure of protein and DNA from its sequence, and understanding how and when genes are expressed. This site links to tools being developed toward these interests.
CMS Molecular Biology Resource
[San Diego Supercomputer Center] A compendium of electronic and Internet-accessible tools and resources for Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Molecular Evolution, Biochemistry, and Biomolecular Moldeling.
[ExPASy] CombSearch is an attempt to provide a unified interface to query several protein identification tools accessible on the web. Includes PeptIdent, TagIdent, and MultiIdent from ExPASy, MS-Fit from ProteinProspector, Mowse from Imperial SERC Daresbury Laboratory, ProFound from PROWL, and Peptide Search from EMBL Protein & Peptide Group.
[National Center for Biotechnology Information] Provides a General search for nucleotide sequences, protein sequences, biomolecule 3D structures, genomes, taxonomy or literature.
[Incogen] A list of links to sites in the following catagories: databases, DNA analysis, protein analysis, sequencing projects, mapping and linkage, genome centers, culture collections, companies, biological resources and information, and FAQS.

ISREC Software Homepage
[Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer] This site provides a number of servers in the areas of sequence analysis, domain/motif searches, gene prediction, and prediction of protein features.
Links to Pathway and Other Databases
[GenomeNet] A comprehensive list of links to biological and biochemical databases. The types of databases include: metabolic pathways; enzymes, compounds, and elements; regulatory pathways; protein-protein interactions; nomenclature and classification; taxonomy; and complete genomes and analysis.
Links to Pathway Databases
[Kyoto University] A list of links to databases of pathways of reactions & compounds in living cells.
[Columbia University Bioinformatics Center] This server submits your protein sequence to other servers through one interface. Analyses are in the areas of protein structure and function.
Proteomics & Bioinformatics
[Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute] “Canada’s Premiere Research Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics” provides several tools and downloadable programs for protein sequence analysis.
[ExPASy] An extensive annotated list of links to tools that provide analysis of protein sequences and structures.
