Protein Identification and Analysis Tools on the ExPASy Server
To utilize the extensive annotation available in the Swiss-Prot database (1) wherever possible, in particular the position-specific annotation in the Swiss-Prot feature tables to take into account posttranslational modifications and protein processing.
To develop tools specifically, but not exclusively, applicable to proteins prepared by twodimensional gel electrophoresis and peptide mass fingerprinting experiments.
To make all tools available on the World-Wide Web (WWW), and freely usable by the scientific community.
