CeColDB - How to contact us
This website was generated while investigating the collagen-like protein in C. elegans - which finally cumulated in our publication "The in-silico characterization of the Caenorhabditis elegans matrisome and proposal of a novel collagen classification", currently in submission at Matrix Biology.
The original idea was born by Dr. Collin Ewald based on his finding that collagens in C. elegans are
important for longevity.
The identification and classification of cuticular collagen were then performed by Dr. Jan Gebauer.
This also leads to the following contact addresses:
- collagens in general
- collagens in C. elegans
- this website & its' data
