BCL2DB is a database-backed web resource on the BCL-2 protein group that contains information and tools for sequence-structure-function analysis. It will enable researchers to readily retrieve BCL-2 sequences, their related information and obtain data of relevance to them. The database contains information for cellular and viral BCL-2 homologous proteins as well as for classical BH3-only proteins. Moreover, BCL2DB has been designed in such a way that it can be easily adapted to incorporate other proteins of interest such as other BH3-containing proteins and viral BCL-2-related proteins. In the long run, BCL2DB will serve as an integrated platform incorporating all "-omics" data sets for formulating experimentally testable hypotheses.

The database is developed by the CRCL and PRABI in collaboration with Dr Abdel Aouacheria at the MCFE of ISEM, UMR 5554.
