A suite of tools to analyse and publish 2-DE data

Proteomics. 2008 Dec;8(23-24):4907-9. doi: 10.1002/pmic.200800301.


Bioinformatics tools may assist scientists in all steps of a typical 2-DE gel analysis workflow, that is, from the description of the sample preparation protocols, going through the gel image analysis and protein identification, to the publication of Internet-ready 2-DE gel databases. This short communication highlights in a single and summarised view, this workflow and the current bioinformatics solutions developed by the Proteome Informatics Group at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.
