Abstract

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) provides a number of tools important in the bioinformatics analysis of proteins, nucleic acid sequences, genes, and their biological significance. The user is allowed to start at the whole-genome level and reach the protein three-dimensional structural detail level. Links and software integration permit an easy flow of information between different resources. This review will focus on all those tools that are not related to the detection of homology (see Detecting protein homology using NCBI tools).
