Dear Robert, The answers to your questions: " I need help in learning how to interpret and analyze the data regarding various proteins that are cataloged in database such as the ones cataloged in the NCBI databases. Are there any resources on the web that can assist me in understanding the different symbols and abbreviations used to describe the protein.Moreover, are there any tutorial sites on the web that can help me gain a better understanding of proteins?" are as simple as they are asked but I give you no real answers. When you have taken all the effort to locate and use to NCBI databases I assume that you are clever, therefore you should be able to use all the very good help and FAQ functions that can be found on these pages like http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov:80/entrez/query/static/help/helpdoc.html Furthermore, all other answers to your questions can simply be found using the different search machines of which I prefer the following ones: http://www.dogpile.com http://www.mamma.com I can image that you are disappointed with these asnwers but I think you need to work yourself as well, Good luck, dick van wassenaar
