Dasty and UniProt DAS: a perfect pair for protein feature visualization

Bioinformatics. 2005 Jul 15;21(14):3198-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bti506. Epub 2005 May 19.


In this study, we present two freely available and complementary Distributed Annotation System (DAS) resources: a DAS reference server that provides up-to-date sequence and annotation from UniProt, with additional feature links and database cross-references from InterPro and a DAS client implemented using Java and Macromedia Flash that is optimized for the display of protein features.
