The NIDCR Oral Pathogen Sequence Relational Database is available from the Los Alamos National Laboratory Bioscience Division through an interagency agreement with the Department of Energy.
The power of a relational database is demonstrated in the ability to search its information. The site provides five search tools, each with different characteristics. The Basic Search allows a simple query of many fields for a text term. The Intermediate Search allows the user to search specific tables, to search a range of molecular weights or isoelectric points and to search the protein or nucleotide sequences for simple patterns. The Advanced SQL Search allows those who understand Structured Query Language to construct cross table and more specific queries. The Protein Motif Search allows searching protein sequences for sophisticated amino acid patterns and a Search Engine style of search is also available.
