BAC is a database of Bio ACtive peptides. The collected information comes from the literature and each entry reports the peptide sequence, its biological activity, the reference (with hyperlink to Medline or other similar service).

The current release (April 2005) includes 745 entries.

BAC is developed within the ASC project (Active Sequence Collection). The ASC home page contains information about present and past release, updates, and references.

This database is accessible by the SITEMATCHER searching tool, an original software specifically developed to search the databases from the ASC project.
