Bioinformatics Tools for the analysis of data from "omics" studies

by the Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, ISA - CNR, Italy

Welcome to our web pages and tools for bioinformatics analysis of data generated by "omics" studies.

This activity of the Lab is supported by the InterOmics Flagship Project. The Lab is involved in the development of bioinformatics tools to help partners of the Program in the analysis of experimental data from oncoproteomics studies.

Here, we present the tools we developed with the Project, and previous tools of interest for this field.

ALI-SPECTRA is designed to align signals from mass spectra, to verify the presence of common peaks as well as to highlight specific signals.


NEAPOLIS offers a quick an robust procedure to align signals from mass spectra, with different features in comparison to ALI-SPECTRA.


PROTEIN_FINDER accepts a list of protein accession numbers and analyzes features of the sequences, such as amino acid composition, number of observable peptides, and others.


LIST_COMP is designed to compare two lists of accession numbers, or other codes, and to highlight duplications of lists, shared and unique codes.


PROSCAN is a tool to search patterns within a given protein sequence, and performs composition analysis.


HELM is a software developed to search for HELix Motifs within protein sequences.



ASC is a collection of active sequences of peptides, useful to search for similarities of a given sequence with proteins segments and peptides with a biological activity.


GALT is a database with structural and functional information about GALT enzyme and its known mutant forms.
