The ContaMiner team
rapid automated large-scale detection of contaminant crystals.
Protein contaminants, from the expression host, purification
buffers or from the affinity tags used, may crystallise instead
of a protein of interest.
Unfortunately, this only becomes clear once the crystal
structure has been determined...
ContaMiner allows rapid screening of X-ray diffraction data
against the most likely proteins contaminants.
LD Motif Finder
LD motifs (leucine–aspartic acid motifs) are short helical
protein–protein interaction motifs that have emerged as key
players in connecting cell adhesion with cell motility and
survival. LD motifs are required for embryogenesis, wound
healing and the evolution of multicellularity. LD motifs also
play roles in disease, such as in cancer metastasis or viral
The LD Motif
Finder predicts the presence and location of LD motifs in
More application are being developped, and will become available
on this website when ready.
