Using CONTEXTS is possible to build rich web applications that integrate the information retrieved from several biological resources.

CONTEXTS components

CONTEXTS components are small widgets providing annotations about different biological entities and processes. Some components can be simply used embedding a small code snippet in any web page. CONTEXTS components are interconnected through different elements. Components are classicaly linked by database identifiers but also full text descriptions, genome and protein positions can also be used as linkers. Combining several components it’s possible to create complete tools to retrieve and analyze biological information.

This component allows user to represent any sequence annotations available through the DAS protocol.

This component allows users navigate the parts stored in the MIT Registry of standard biological parts while annotations about the part and subparts are provided.

This component displays a graph with cellular processes, pathways, and protein domains containing a significant number of mutated genes among different tumor types.

This CONTEXTS component provides a graphical representation of the STRING interaction network for a given protein. Annotations for each interaction partners can be retrieved from UniProt.

This component allows users navigate the protein sequence while annotations about the protein regions and residues are provided.

This component displays the UniProt annotations for a given protein. The annotations provided are: name, genes, taxonomy, tissue subcellular location and function.

Datagrid component to display the results retrieved for a protein search. The grid columns are: Uniprot id, gene, protein name, protein full name and taxonomy

This component displays the NCBI annotations for a given DNA sequence. The annotations provided are: definition, length, topology, source and organism.

Datagrid component to display the results retrieved for an NCBI search. The grid columns are: NCBI Id, Sequence length, Organism and definition.

Form to search for parts in the MIT Registry of Standard Biological Parts. The component provides methods to search the Registry using a part name.
