Computational tools for the interactive exploration of proteomic and structural data

Mol Cell Proteomics. 2010 Aug;9(8):1703-15. doi: 10.1074/mcp.R000007-MCP201. Epub 2010 Jun 4.


Linking proteomics and structural data is critical to our understanding of cellular processes, and interactive exploration of these complementary data sets can be extremely valuable for developing or confirming hypotheses in silico. However, few computational tools facilitate linking these types of data interactively. In addition, the tools that do exist are neither well understood nor widely used by the proteomics or structural biology communities. We briefly describe several relevant tools, and then, using three scenarios, we present in depth two tools for the integrated exploration of proteomics and structural data.
