2D electrophoresis proteome database: Musa spp.

This page serves as the starting point for Musa spp. data in the proteome databases from the Centre for Proteome Analysis from the University of Antwerp. The correct bookmark address is

The aim of this database is to facilitate data-integration, interrelation and querying, and to provide interested researchers of the datasets on which the proteome research papers of this project were based. A number of tools is currently under development that in the future will assist in querying and analysing the data presented here. For more info please look on our bioinformatics tools website.

Genus: Musa
Section: Eumusa
Species/group: ABB
Subspecies/subgroup: Bluggoe

The Musa dataset can currently be accessed via the following ways:
