Project Overview MyMpn is an online resource devoted to studying the human pathogen Mycoplasma pneumoniae, a minimal bacterium causing lower respiratory tract infections. Due to its small size, its ability to grow in vitro, and the amount of data produced over the past decades, M. pneumoniae is an interesting model organisms for the development of systems biology for unicellular organisms. Our database hosts a wealth of omics-scale datasets generated by hundreds of experimental and computational analyses generated in the context of the mycoplasma project, an international collaboration between the The Design of Biological Systems Group at the CRG Barcelona and different research groups at the EMBL Heidelberg. These include data obtained from gene expression profiling experiments, gene essentiality studies, protein abundance profiling, protein complexes analysis, metabolic reactions and network modeling, cell growth experiments, comparative genomics, and 3D tomography. In addition, the intuitive web interface provides access to several visualization and analysis tools as well as to different data search options. The database content is linked to several related sites and the reference articles. The availability and - even more relevant - the accessibility of properly structured and organized data are of up-most importance when aiming to understand the biology of an organism on a global scale. Therefore, MyMpn constitutes a unique and valuable new resource for the large systems biology and microbiology community. For more information, see the about section and the group articles.
