Definition of the term “Experiment” and input of protein data

In order to generate a technical understanding of the term “Experiment” used throughout in STRENDA DB, Carsten Kettner explains its meaning: an “Experiment” is characterized by the protein assayed. One manuscript can contain one or more “Experiments” if for example the authors compared the catalytic activity of the native protein with a genetically modified one or two homolog proteins from different tissues, organs or organisms. Then, it is shown, how to define an experiment followed by the entries required to comprehensively describe the protein used in the assay.

The STRENDA Commission has established standards for data reporting in enzymology research. The aim of these STRENDA Guidelines is to improve the quality of data published in the scientific literature and to enable researchers to compare, evaluate, interpret and reproduce experimental research results published in the literature and databases. STRENDA supports authors by providing STRENDA DB – a web-based database whose data submission form automatically checks the manuscript data prior or during the publication process on compliance with the STRENDA Guidelines.
