Over 2 years ago I did a tip of the week on Phosida (links to Phosida). Phosida is a database of phosphorylation, acetylation, and N-glycosylation data. Since the last tip, Phosida has undergone significant growth and some changes, including the addition of much more data (80,000 phosphorylation, acetylation and N-glycosylated sites from 9 different species) and tools (prediction and motif analysis). You can read more about those changes in this year’s NAR database issue article.
Today’s tip will revisit the database and redo a search that was done in the tip from 2009, this time using a protein search instead of a category search.
