DATABASES

Bioinformatics has emerged into a discipline due to the availability of huge amount of data.
The collection of biological information is very vast and as a result there are number of databases
which are available online.

Here's a list of major Biological databases:-

Protein Sequences Databases

1.Primary Protein Sequence Databases:-The primary sequence databases currently hold over
300,000 non-redundant protein sequences. The most commonly-used are SWISS PROT and PIR.

2.Composite Databases:-There are a number of "composite" databases of protein sequences.
These compile their sequence data from the primary sequence databases and filter them to retain
only the non-redundant sequences. The best-known are OWL,NCBI.

3.Secondary Sequence Databases:-Secondary databases are those that contain information derived
from the primary sequence databases like PROSITE,PRINTS and Pfam.

.

Still there are number of categories in which Protein Sequence Databases can be characterized,these databases are as follows:-
