Deployment of Protein Profile by PSnpBind

Published: 08 March 2022
Deployment Protein

Visualizing computing results for manual inspection is important. Ammar Ammar published (doi:10.1186/s13321-021-00573-5) 0.6 million ligand-protein docking experiments for 26 different protein structures with many single nucleotide polymorphisms in the online and open source PSnpBind database. The protein summary pages are annotated with the Protein profile (0.11-RELEASE) , for example for this Urokinase-type plasminogen activator.

We are pleased to announce the release of the ComputationalTool Profile from the Tools Working Group.

Standard Properties

Published: 01 November 2021
Community Profile

A standard set of properties have been added to all Bioschemas profiles. These properties allow consumers of markup to more easily understand the markup, and to validate it against the relevant profile. Essentially the properties form a boilerplate for any markup, see following code snippet for an example protein taken from DisProt.
