Inside SWISS-2DPAGE database

Electrophoresis. 1995 Jul;16(7):1131-51. doi: 10.1002/elps.11501601190.


Several two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2-D PAGE) databases have been established and updated for more than 15 years. Only recently have developments of computer networks and high-speed transfer protocols provided the required tools for sharing comprehensive and hypermedia 2-D PAGE databases. This publication describes the SWISS-2DPAGE database structure. Proteins present in samples of human tissue, cells, cell lines and body fluids are assembled and described in an accessible uniform format. SWISS-2DPAGE can be freely accessed through the World-Wide Web (WWW) network on the ExPASy molecular biology server.
