Update of KEYnet: a gene and protein names database for biosequences functional organisation.
ABSTRACT KEYnet is a database where gene and protein names are hierarchically structured. Particular care has been devoted to the search and organisation of synonyms. The structuring is based on biological criteria in order to assist the user in data search and to minimise the risk of information loss. Links to the EMBL data library by the entry name and the accession number are implemented. KEYnet is available through the WWW at the following site: http://www.ba.cnr.it/keynet.html
Article: Reorganization and merging of the EMBL and GenBank keyword indexes in a tree structure for more efficient retrieval of nucleic acid sequences.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: EMBL and GenBank keyword indexes have no hierarchical structure. In this paper we present a method for merging and reorganizing them in a tree structure whose primary roots are the keywords 'protein', 'DNA', 'RNA', and 'unclassified'. Synonymous keywords have been grouped together and erroneous keywords have been corrected. This taxonomic organization of keywords results in a more extensive and efficient retrieval which is further aided by "synonyms declaration". The tree has been produced using the computer programs GENPOINT and CREANET.Protein sequences & data analysis 10/1990; 3(4):327-34.
