ProtWeb and BioWeb--Networking for Biologists
Division of Biomedical Information Science, Johns Hopkins University
The past four years have witnessed dramatic changes in the ways information is provided on the Internet. The Internet has gone from an environment where access to information was difficult, and oriented toward those with high levels of technical expertise, to one where the average computer users can sit at their desk-top PC/Macs and literally point and click their way around the world. Much of these changes have come about due to the development of three network protocols and a few pieces of software implementing them. WAIS, Gopher, and World Wide Web (WWW) are network based information dissemination protocols which operate on the client-server model. These three protocols have dramatically changed the face of the Internet. Perhaps surprisingly, biologists are at the forefront of this wave of changes.
Computational biologists have long been involved in the Internet but now "Joe and Josephine Biologist" are starting to use the network resources available to them. Of central importance to molecular biology and biochemistry is access to databases containing information about molecular sequences and their function, 3-D protein structures, genetic mapping information, and the associated literature citations. We present work done with network information servers based on the World Wide Web protocol which has begun to give an integrated view of these various database needs.
