Biology Resources

These are resources related to biology that may be useful to chemists doing biology (or, I suppose, biologists doing biology). Feel free to contact me if you find any others that are generally useful; this list will grow.

Databases

Tools

  • IDT SciTools http://www.idtdna.com/scitools/scitools.aspx
    • note: IDT is a company that sells oligonucleotides
    • the SciTools are freely available; Oligo Analyzer is particularly useful for RNA primer design
  • ExPASy http://us.expasy.org/
    • from the site's description: "ExPASy is the SIB Bioinformatics Resource Portal which provides access to scientific databases and software tools (i.e., resources) in different areas of life sciences including proteomics, genomics, phylogeny, systems biology, population genetics, transcriptomics etc"
    • many useful tools on this portal; see for example PeptideMass (gives expected masses given specific digests of peptides)
