Proteomic and Transcriptomic Databases

Scientists in the Epithelial Systems Biology Laboratory, headed by Mark Knepper, have generated a large number of online databases making proteomic and transcriptomic findings available to the general public. In addition, ESBL personnel have helped a number of extramural scientists to curate their own data sets to create online resources. These data sets are hosted by NIH (Helix Systems, High-Performance Computing at the NIH). Click here to access.
