Proteome Databases: BIOBASE Knowledge® Library

The Marian Koshland Bioscience Library licenses the BIOBASE Knowledge® Library for UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and students.  Users can choose to establish a personal account with BIOBASE in order to save individual search results.

BIOBASE Knowledge® Library (BKL) focuses on Proteome of mammalian species, model organisms, and human fungal pathogens. Proteome is a large-scale study of protein structures & functions expressed by a genome, cell, tissue, or organism. BKL is one of the best ways to quickly assess a vast set of protein properties for a given protein, or even a set of proteins. With content covering disease, drugs, gene regulation, pathways, and fully annotated genomes, the database contains 520,000 references manually curated from over 4,400 journals, with experimental observations linked to the original PubMed reference, and 12 million data relationships covering mammalian, plant, yeast, and worm genomes. The content is updated every two weeks.

BIOBASE Knowledge® Library provides access to the following databases:

  • YPD™ (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
  • PombePD™ (Schizosaccharomyces pombe)
  • WormPD™ (Caenorhabditis elegans)
  • MycoPathPD™ human fungal pathogen database containing 18 fungal pathogens
  • HumanPSD™ BIOBASE Survey Database for information on human, mouse, and rat proteins
  • GPCR-PD™ G Protein-coupled Receptors database for human, mouse and rat proteins, their ligands and downstream signaling molecules
