Proteomics has become a critical tool in the functional understanding of plant processes at the molecular level. Proteomicsbased studies have also contributed to the ever-expanding array of data in modern biology, with many generating Web portals and online resources that contain incrementally expanding and updated information. Many of these resources reflect specialist research areas with significant and novel information that is not currently captured by centralized repositories. The Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) community is well ser by a number of online proteomics resources that hold an abundance of functional information. These sites can be difficult to locate among a multitude of online resources. Furhermore, they can be difficult to navigate in order to idenfity specific features of interest without significant techincal knowledge. Recently, members of the Arabidopsis proteomics community involved in developing many of these resources decided todeveloping many of these reoures decided to develop a summary aggregaton portal that is capable of retrieving protemics data from a series of online resources on the fly. The Web portal is known as the MASCP Gator and can be accessed at the follwing address: http://gator.masc-protemics.org/. Significantly, proteomics data displayed at this site retrieve information from the data repositories upon wach request. This means that information id always up to date and displays the latest date sets. The site also provides hyperlinks back to the source information hosted at each of the curated databases to facilitate more in-depth analysis of the primary data.
