PhosphoGRID

I no longer work on protein kinases but when I did, PhosphoGRID is the kind of database that I would have wanted to see. It features:

  • A nice clean interface, with good use of Javascript
  • Useful information returned from a simple search form
  • Data for download in plain text format with no restrictions or requirements for registration

All it lacks is a RESTful API, but nothing is perfect :-)

Published in the little-known but often-useful journal Database:

PhosphoGRID: a database of experimentally verified in vivo protein phosphorylation sites from the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
doi:10.1093/database/bap026.

    The one thing I do not like about this site is that the contents don’t live up to the perceived ‘promises’ of the title.
    You really have to dig deep into the fine print until you see that this is all budding yeast only.
    I don’t think it is even mentioned anywhere on the page!

      Yes, that should be clearer at their website and perhaps in this blog post. It is clearly stated in the title of the publication in Database.
