About COPaKB

The COPa Knowledgebase (COPaKB) Project was developed under the NHLBI Proteomics Centers Program (2010-2015) and is continuously supported through the NIGMS BD2K Centers Program (2014-2018). COPaKB has been created as a unique resource to facilitate the discovery of novel biological insights from proteomic datasets:

  • COPaKB is a curated relational database of protein molecular and biomedical phenotype properties, interfaced to a website for public data retrieval.
  • COPaKB enables investigators to process raw proteomic datasets without the need of high-end instrumentation, and returns a consistently annotated report of protein properties.
  • COPaKB offers a wide range of informatics tools for investigators to analyze different studies in parallel and to conduct meta-analyses.
