Abstract:Using the Distributed Annotation System (DAS) we have created a protein annotation resource available at our web page: http://www.cbs.dtu.dk, as a part of the BioSapiens Network of Excellence EU FP6 project. The DAS protocol allows us to gather layers of annotation data for a given sequence and thereby gain an overview of the sequence's features. A user-friendly graphical client has also been developed (http://www.cbs.dtu.dk/cgi-bin/das), which demonstrates the possibility of integrating DAS annotation data from multiple sources into a simple graphical view. The client displays protein feature annotations from the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis as well as from the BioSapiens reference UniProt server (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/das-srv/uniprot/das) at the European Bioinformatics Institute. Other DAS data sources for protein annotation will be added as they become available.

- Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) is a fully Open Access journal, providing rapid publication of leading edge research into the nucleic acids under the following categories: chemistry, computational biology, genomics, molecular biology, nucleic acid enzymes, RNA and structural biology. There is a Survey and Summary section, and methods papers are published
in NAR Methods Online. Each year the first issue is devoted to biological databases, and a later issue to relevant web-based software resources.
