The biological interpretation of two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis experiments is a key step toward understanding the functions of biological systems. We here present a web-based integrated database, called 2DSpotDB, for the management of proteome data derived from several pathogens. The 2DSpotDB was established as a part of the management of a pathogen proteome project at the Korea National Institute of Health. The goals of the 2DSpotDB implementation are to store and define important

This database currently contains 14 gels and information on 387 protein spots, among which 329 proteins were identified and annotated. Availability: The 2DSpotDB can be accessed at http:// pathod.cdc.go.kr/2dspotdb.
