The UCLA-DOE Institute for Genomics and Proteomics carries out research in bioenergy, structural biology, genomics and proteomics, consistent with the research mission of the United States Department of Energy.
Major interests of the 12 Principal Investigators and 9 Associate Members include systems approaches to organisms, structural biology, bioinformatics, and bioenergetic systems. The Institute sponsors 5 Core Technology Centers, for X-ray and NMR structural determination, bioinformatics and computation, protein expression and purification, and biochemical instrumentation.
Services offered by this Institute:
* DIP (The Database of Interacting Proteins): The DIPTM database catalogs experimentally determined interactions between proteins. It combines information from a variety of sources to create a single, consistent set of protein-protein interactions.
* ProLinks Database of Functional Linkages: The Prolinks database is a collection of inference methods used to predict functional linkages between proteins. These methods include the Phylogenetic Profile method which uses the presence and absence of proteins across multiple genomes to detect functional linkages; the Gene Cluster method, which uses genome proximity to predict functional linkage; Rosetta Stone, which uses a gene fusion event in a second organism to infer functional relatedness; and the Gene Neighbor method, which uses both gene proximity and phylogenetic distribution to infer linkage.
