Improving IDP tools interoperability and integration into ELIXIR

The increasingly well-documented role of intrinsic disorder in protein behavior and function requires infrastructure improvements to enable enhanced researcher access to related tools and data. In this study we implement:

i) improved accessibility for tools that define where disorder is likely to appear in proteins,

ii) better integration of disorder with CAFA, including protein region definitions, so improving the connection between function and disorder,

iii) exploration of emerging disorder definitions and data for future prediction challenges,

iv) a gap analysis study to connect to tools and data from the 3D-Bioinfo and proteomics communities.

In addition, the study includes the Galaxy community and the interoperability, data, tools and training platforms, with participants from 8 countries.
