  • Publication number: 20040115629
    Abstract: The present invention provides purified human polynucleotides for diagnostics and therapeutics (dithp). Also en-compassed are the polypeptides (DITHP) encoded by dithp. The invention also provides for the use of dithp, or complements, oligonucleotides, or fragments thereof in diagnostic assays. The invention further provides for vectors and host cells containing dithp for the expression of DITHP. The invention additionally provides for the use of isolated and purified DITHP to induce antibodies and to screen libraries of compounds and the use of anti-DITHP antibodies in diagnostic assays. Also provided are microarrays containing dithp and methods of use.

  • Publication number: 20020064792
    Abstract: The present invention is a computerized storage and retrieval system for genetic information and related annotated information. The data of the system is stored in a relational database which interfaces with public databases to allow analysis both within the database of the invention and between information within that database and external public databases. The sequence data is edited before entry into the system, and is stored in a curated, functional clustering organization. The information associated with the data is stored in an expression database that is linked to the storage of the sequence data.

  • Patent number: 6023659
    Abstract: Disclosed is a relational database system for storing biomolecular sequence information in a manner that allows sequences to be catalogued and searched according to one or more protein function hierarchies. The hierarchies allow searches for sequences based upon a protein's biological function or molecular function. Also disclosed is a mechanism for automatically grouping new sequences into protein function hierarchies. This mechanism uses descriptive information obtained from "external hits" which are matches of stored sequences against gene sequences stored in an external database such as GenBank. The descriptive information provided with the external database is evaluated according to a specific algorithm and used to automatically group the external hits (or the sequences associated with the hits) in the categories.
