Tracking down basic data on proteins can be a dull scavenger hunt, as you jump from site to site picking up snippets of information. Delegate this tedious chore to the Molecular Information Agent, a search program from the San Diego Supercomputer Center. The agent scours more than 50 databases, including sequence storehouses such as SWISS-PROT and GenBank, structural collections such as the Protein Data Bank, and PubMed. The center will store the results or send them to you by e-mail.
