Section: New Results
A new database, called Doris (for Database Of non-RIbosomal Synthetases), has been created to extend the information we provide about non-ribosomal peptides to their producing enzymes, the non-ribosomal peptide synthetases. For the moment, a first version of the web interface has been developed by Louise Ott, an engineer from Lille1 University. More than 400 enzymes have been automatically extracted from general databases.
A collaboration started with members of Orpailleur EPI to design a semi-automatic process to collect non-ribosomal synthetases (NRPSs). We already start adapting MODIM, a generic tool developed by Orpallieur EPI to collect and integrate data extracted from various web sources, to the specific needs of NRPSs.
As mentioned in the software section, the source code has been reorganised by Laurie Tonon, a SED engineer, to use model view controller software architecture, implemented with Struts2.
