Notes on the databases
There is a whole range of databases, so here is a brief explanation. Very practical is Reaxys, where you can find extensive information on structures, reactions, data and literature. Apart from Wikipedia, Chemgapedia as a freely accessible homepage and RÖMPP are also suitable encyclopaedias.
|Page with many excellent animations on biochemistry
|UniProt: extensive collection of information on proteins, recognises name search
|BLAST: Enter amino acid or nucleotide sequence, searches for matches to known proteins;
amino acid and nucleotide sequence can be found
|ExPASY: bioinformatics portal for calculating many properties
|PDB: Structures of proteins and nucleic acids
|PyMOL: Programme for the 3D representation of biomolecules (registration required)
|Webcutter 2.0: Finds restriction sites in any DNA sequence
|ApE (A plasmid Editor): A versatile programme around plasmids.
Virtual digest, graphical representation, primer design, etc.
|Rebase: Database on restriction enzymes
|Pubmed: Online publication search
Notes on the biochemistry links
Finding information in biochemistry is not as easy as with Reaxys, for example. Without prior knowledge, you won’t get very far. However, there is an introduction to some databases in the practical course Biochemistry I and you learn more in the lecture Bioinformatics during the 6th semester.
