Simple and versatile biobank sample information federation: MIABIS Connect

MIABIS Connect

Finding biosamples with specific characteristics across different biobanks is challenging because each biobank manages sample information differently. Together with the sensitive nature of large amounts of biosample information, this makes it difficult to pull information together for example in a central place where a researcher can browse and discover groups of samples that might be suitable for a given research project.

Determine the coordination geometry of metals in biological macromolecules

Metals are essential for the structure and function of many proteins and nucleic acids. The geometric arrangement of the atoms that coordinate a metal in a biological macromolecule is an important determinant of the specificity and role of that metal. FindGeo quickly finds and determines the coordination geometry of selected, or all, metals in a given structure.
