well, for a start madam has asked us to find few terms related to this particular subject..here they are...>>>
1) bioinformatics - application of information technology and computer science to the field of molecular biology.
e.g: mapping and analyzing DNA and protein sequences, aligning different DNA and protein sequences to compare them and creating and viewing 3-D models of protein structures.
2) bioinformatics tools -the software programs for the saving, retrieving, and analysis of biological data and extracting the information from them.
>> the basic local alignment tool [BLAST] for comparing gene and protein sequences against others in public databases.
>>FASTA - a database search tool used to compare a nucleotide or peptide sequence to a sequence database.
3) protein data bank [PDB] - a repository for the 3-D structural data of large biological molecules, such as protein and nucleic acids.
unfortunately, couldn't find anything regarding NCBI.. ;(
hope these may be helpful to others...
