Protein databases

Definition

A protein database is one or more datasets about proteins, which could include a protein's amino acid sequence, conformation, structure, and features such as active sites. Protein databases are compiled by the translation of DNA sequences from different gene databases and include structural information. They are an important resource because proteins mediate most biological functions.
