A Microbial Biocatalysis Database

Symbolic Representation of the UM-BBD
The upper part of the figure symbolizes the worldwide distribution of information of interest to biotechnology, using the Kyoto University Ligand Chemical Database and the European Bioinformatics Institute EMBL Nucleic Acid Sequence Database to represent the many databases linked to the UM-BBD. The middle shows links to each of these two databases from one UM-BBD reaction, pentachlorophenol --> 2,3,5,6 tetrachlorohydroxyquinone. The lower part symbolizes a bacterium and its metabolism upon which the entire UM-BBD is based. The image was generated by Brian Beardsley, BioMedical Graphic Communications, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, 55455, USA.
