Cyanobacteria have been experimentally used as a model for plants and bacteria, therefore many cyanobacteria, such as, and , have been studied at the genomic and proteomic levels.
In the quest to understand the affect of fluctuating environmental temperatures onprotein-protein interaction networks and proteome-wide expression levels, underlying the temperature stress response of this cyanobacterium for use as model mechanisms for other photosynthetic organisms, such as plants, algae and other cyanobacteria. Moreover, proteome-wide domain identification is available in the database, which might be useful for further studies on protein-protein interaction domain analyses. SpirPro is publicly available on-line at .mass cultivation, researchers performed proteomic analyses of under optimal and temperature stress conditions. The study led to the development of SpirPro, an integrated database for . This database provides possible mechanisms, in term of
This is a joint study between Biochemical Engineering and Pilot Plant Research and Development Laboratory and King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi.
