Thomson Scientific Introduces Data Platform for Biological Researchers

Thomson Scientific announced the release of BONDplus (http://scientific.thomson.com/bondplus), an integrated, Web-based data platform for biological researchers. Compiled from 15 assembled resources including GenBank, RefSeq, Entrez Gene, and UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot, BONDplus allows researchers to move beyond the genome and leverage publicly available biological sequence data, BINDplus biomolecular interaction data, as well as GENESEQ, a value added database of patented biological sequences. The platform is designed to enable new insights into biological research including target-based discovery and rational drug design.

BONDplus provides an intuitive and value-added resource for any researcher by uniting the genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic research communities around one comprehensive platform. The subscription service provides information from the assembled resources including BINDplus and GENESEQ in addition to precomputed data sets with BLAST functionality, visualization tools, and more than 80 million public domain sequences. Thomson provides primary, secondary, and tertiary data types, ranging from proteins and small molecules to gene and protein expression and more complex data types such as toxicology/efficacy data, biomarker, interaction, and pathway information.Source: Thomson Scientific
