Definition Database of organelle proteins, and subcel Database of organelle proteins, and subcellular structures / complexes from compiled protein localization data from organisms spanning the eukaryotic kingdom. All data may be downloaded as a tab-delimited text file and new localization data (and localization images, etc) for any organism relevant to the data sets currently contained in Organelle DB is welcomed. The data sets in Organelle DB encompass 138 organisms with emphasis on the major model systems: S. cerevisiae, A. thaliana, D. melanogaster, C. elegans, M. musculus, and human proteins as well. In particular, Organelle DB is a central repository of yeast protein localization data, incorporating results from both previous and current (ongoing) large-scale studies of protein localization in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In addition, we have manually curated several recent subcellular proteomic studies for incorporation in Organelle DB. In total, Organelle DB is a singular resource consolidating our knowledge of the protein composition of eukaryotic organelles and subcellular structures. When available, we have included terms from the Gene Ontologies: the cellular component, molecular function, and biological process fields are discussed more fully in GO. Additionally, when available, we have included fluorescent micrographs (principally of yeast cells) visualizing the described protein localization. Organelle View is a visualization tool for yeast protein localization. It is a visually engaging way for high school and undergraduate students to learn about genetics or for visually-inclined researchers to explore Organelle DB. By revealing the data through a colorful, dimensional model, we believe that different kinds of information will come to light. t kinds of information will come to light.
