Installing and using the BioBar toolbar for Firefox

submitted by: simont

This video shows how to install and use the BioBar toolbar on Firefox. This is a nifty addition to the browser that makes accessing many of the usual online databases and tools very easy. It also allows you to easily run a search at these databases without having to navigate to the website first. BioBar can be found at biobar.mozdev.org and was written by Jawahar Swaminathan at the EBI.

Antibody-protein interactions: benchmark datasets and prediction tools evaluation

linked profile(s): juliap
submitted by: apryl
Background The ability to predict antibody binding sites (aka antigenic determinants or B-cell epitopes) for a given protein is a precursor to new vaccine design and diagnostics. Among the various methods of B-cell epitope identification X-ray crystallography is one of the most reliable methods. Using these experimental data computational methods exist for B-cell epitope prediction. As the number of structures of antibody-protein complexes grows, further interest in prediction...
