Gowrishankar R, SundaraBaalaji N., Database on structural and functional Information for biotoxins, Onl J Bioinform., 22 (2): 82-95, 2021. Databases containing structural information have become indispensable for in silico structural analysis. Toxin data provide sequences, but limited structural descriptions and functional annotations. As the gap between the amount of structural information and functional characterization widens, increasing efforts are being directed to the development of databases. Biotoxic proteins can identify the membrane proteins, ion channels and predict cancer cell surfaces. We modeled snake, spider and scorpion biotoxins primary sequence databases. We determined 3D toxin protein structure by homology modeling and validation by computation for features and putative function. To access model proteins we created a database for biotoxin cancer research, drug design, membrane proteins and ion channels.
