DoBISCUIT: Database Of BIoSynthesis clusters CUrated and InTegrated
|National Institute of Technology and Evaluation|
|Successful development of new drugs often relies on information about secondary metabolites produced by actinomycetes.|
This is a database constructed from literature about recognized gene clusters of NRPSs (Non-Ribosomal Peptide Synthetases) and PKSs (Polyketide Synthases).
Data about these secondary metabolite biosynthesis gene clusters is herewith offered in a comprehensively descriptive manner. This saves the researcher the laborious task of gathering the information often dispersed in many references.
Text search, Module search and Blast search options for information retrieval are provided as is a menu allowing access to KS/A domain sequences.
