Hi All,

Hope you are well.

I'm coming here to get know-how from experts here.

I'm currently studying the plant protein sequences and the use of digital for identification. Basically, the goal would be to have a peptide sequence and find a similar one in the vegetal world.

A few questions are raising :

  • Are there any relevant entities/ platforms focusing on those plant based identification ? if yes, which one ? As of today i found companies that are producing new flavours ( Mccormick and IBM with the one platorm)

  • I think what is the most important is to have a database big enough to cover the vegetal span. Are there existing database that would be representative ? I found for example "nr protein database"

I'm looking forward to read your comments, thank you in advance

nr is certainly an option and that will be even the most comprehensive one but it also contains proteins from all known organisms ( so not ONLY plants) you can subselect from it though eg. using taxonomy filtering with the tag "viridiplantae" .

One other plant focussed resource that comes to mind is for instance PLAZA, ENSEMBL-plants ... those are focussed on plants but might not be as comprehensive as nr .
