    Announcing a new service, PeptideMapper, from the Edwards Lab.

    The PeptideMapper Web-Service provides peptide sequence alignments to proteins, mRNA, EST, and HTC sequences from Genbank, RefSeq, UniProt, IPI, VEGA, EMBL, and HInvDb. This mapping infrastructure is supported, in part, by the compressed peptide sequence database infrastructure (Edwards, 2007) which enables a fast, suffix-tree based mapping of peptide sequences to gene identifiers and a gene-focused detailed mapping of peptide sequences to source sequence evidence.

    New home for the RMIDb

    November 14th, 2008, 8:47 am

    The Rapid Microorganism Identification Database (www.RMIDb.org) is back up, and is now hosted by the Edwards Lab at Georgetown University Medical Center. The RMIDb codebase has been scrubbed clean to eliminate any potential for SQL injection attacks and represents a new build of the underlying protein sequence data.
