SIB launches next generation ExPASy, an entry portal to indispensable bioinformatics resources
Date:6/30/2011

The SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics just launched the new generation of ExPASy, a web portal which offers a point of entry to more than 120 SIB bioinformatics resources. Until now, ExPASy was known as a proteomics-dedicated website used by life sciences researchers worldwide. Created in 1993, this resource was the first website available for the biomedical research at a time when the world counted only 150 websites as a whole. Eighteen years later, ExPASy is still an indispensable resource worldwide. Its transformation into a bioinformatics resource portal with the possibility to search for data in various interconnected fields such as proteomics, genomics, phylogeny, systems biology, evolution, drug design and imaging will allow life science researchers to optimise their research activities through access to an enriched set of high-quality data.

ExPASy, the proteomics website, was created 18 years ago, at the early stages of Internet and shared bioinformatics resources. At that time, it was already important for life scientists to access information on bacteria, viruses, proteins and genes for example and the appearance of the Web fostered this information exchange. The availability of new technologies during the past decade has revolutionised the life sciences research activities with the sequencing of more and more genomes. This resulted in the production of daunting amounts of data, which need to be stored, analysed and disseminated in order to extract the knowledge necessary to help research progress and create drugs or vaccines. These tasks would not be possible without the use of bioinformatics tools such as databases, analysis software, modeling tools, powerful computers and multi-skilled people. SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics has been developing avant-garde resources to meet the evolving needs of life sciences researchers. Up to now, the institute produced more than 120 resources in various fields such as proteomics, genomics, ph
