MPSQ: a web tool for protein-state searching

Show Summary Details


Summary: MPSQ (multi-protein-states query) is a web-based tool for the discovery of protein states (e.g. biological interactions, covalent modifications, cellular localizations). In particular, large sets of genes can be used to search for enriched state transition network maps (NMs) and features facilitating the interpretation of genomic-scale experiments such as microarrays. One NM collects all the catalogued states of a protein as well as the mutual transitions between the states. For the returned NM, graph visualization is provided for easy understanding and to guide further analysis.

Availability: MPSQ is freely available via the web at
