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

ylogeny, systems biology, evolution, drug design and imaging which are freely accessible to the worldwide research community. Today, well aware of the need to interconnect these various activities, SIB goes a step further and releases a bioinformatics portal which will be the main entry point to all its precious resources. "The new ExPASy portal reflects the evolution of bioinformatics activities and of SIB, which since its creation in 1998 grew to a leading institute with many scientific competencies and resources used in European and worldwide interconnected research projects", explains Prof. Ron Appel, SIB Executive Director.

A single door to a realm of high-quality bioinformatics resources and knowledge

Since the release of the first ExPASy website, SIB has been creating and maintaining many other bioinformatics resources in various fields. Moreover, well aware of today's challenges the life sciences research community is facing, SIB's 28 research and service groups work closely together to interconnect their various tools. A researcher working on a malfunctioning protein causing a cancer is thus able to access all the knowledge available about the protein and to simultaneously test a putative new drug molecule via modeling tools to see if the treatment could block or release targeted functions. The new ExPASy resource portal now groups all SIB bioinformatics tools and databases in one location and therefore allows researchers a quick access to all competencies available in their research field. Dr Heinz Stockinger, Senior Scientist and project coordinator of the SIB Web Team, that has been working on the optimisation of SIB's websites, explains that "ExPASy is a complete and organised portal which we constructed to allow scientists a quick and optimised research. We included an integrated search functionality and a clear visual guidance interface so that even new users get easily acquainted with all available resources".
