Protein Information Crawler (PIC): extensive spidering of multiple protein information resources for large protein sets.

Author information

  • 1Department of Molecular Physiology, Institute of Zoology, University of Heidelberg, Germany.


Proteomic studies often produce sets of hundreds of proteins. Bioinformatic information for these large protein sets must be collected from multiple online resources. Protein Information Crawler (PIC) automatically bulk-collects such data from multiple databases and prediction servers, based on National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) gi numbers or accession numbers, and summarizes them in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and/or HTML table. PIC greatly accelerates information procurement, helps to build customized protein information databases and drastically reduces manual database investigation in extensive proteomic studies.
