Biological Databases are like
any other databases. Biological Database contains the sequence data of DNA, RNA
etc.. These database are organized for optimal
retrieval and analysis.
Here are the
links of biological databases:
Biological Database Links
Established in 1988 as a national resource for molecular
biology information, NCBI creates public databases, conducts
research in computational biology, develops software tools for
analyzing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information - all
for the better understanding of molecular processes affecting human
health and disease.
Search and Retrieval System
Entrez Programming Utilities are tools that provide access to Entrez
data outside of the regular web query interface and may be helpful
for retrieving search results for future use in another environment.
Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
A grand challenge in the post-genomic era is a complete computer representation of the cell and the organism, which will enable computational prediction of higher-level complexity of cellular processes and organism behaviors from genomic information. Towards this end we have been developing a bioinformatics resource named KEGG, Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes, as part of the research projects in the Kanehisa Laboratory of Kyoto University Bioinformatics Center.
The TIGR Gene Index Project is supported in part by funding from the US Department of Energy, Grant #DE-FG02-99ER62852, and the US National Science Foundation, Grant #DBI-9983070. Additional funds are provided by the US National Science Foundation through grants #DBI-9813392 and #DBI-9975866.
A Comparative Mapping Resource for Grains
Gramene is a curated, open-source, Web-accessible data resource for
comparative genome analysis in the grasses. Our goal is to
facilitate the study of cross-species homology relationships using
information derived from public projects involved in genomic and EST
sequencing, protein structure and function analysis, genetic and
physical mapping, interpretation of biochemical pathways, gene and
QTL localization and descriptions of phenotypic characters and
The goals of this project are to provide a central repository for
public maize information and present it in a way that creates
intuitive biological connections for the researcher with minimal
effort as well as provide a series of computational tools that
directly address the questions of the biologist in an easy-to-use
AREAS Of RESEARCH: Barley Genome Mapping , Map-Based Cloning, Molecular Breeding,
Mutant Isolation & Characterization, Functional Genomics, BAC Address Calculator,
- EMBL European
The European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) is a non-profit academic organisation that forms part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory
(EMBL). The EBI is a centre for research and services in bioinformatics. The Institute manages databases of biological data including nucleic acid, protein sequences and macromolecular structures.
Catalog of Genes for Plant Glycerol Lipid Biosynthesis
The current version of this catalog contains more than 2600 sequence files, many of them with annotation and results of our analysis. This version is updated as of Aug. 1999 and includes essentially all publicly available genomic, cDNA, EST and GSS sequences for 62 plant polypeptides involved in lipid metabolism in higher plant species. An important feature of the catalog are the multiple alignments of amino acid sequences deduced from genomic and EST sequences. This version of the dataset accounts for approximately 70% of the Arabidopsis genome.
- Grain Genes: A
Small Grains and Sugarcane Database
10ptGBrowse, developed by the GMOD
group, is a Genome Browser that provides a wealth of genome
annotation for maps in the GrainGenes collection. Users can easily
manipulate the view of the chromosome and type of data displayed.
PathDB is a beta level research tool for
scientists interested in analyzing their experimental or
computational data in the context of biological pathways and
and Metabolic Pathways Database
Enzymes and Metabolic Pathways database, EMP,
is a unique and most comprehensive electronic source of biochemical
data. It covers all aspects of enzymology and metabolism and
represents the whole factual content of original journal
Mannheim Biochemical Pathways
Roche Applied Science: LightCycler, MagNA Pure LC, Lumi-Imager, PCR
- ExPASy Molecular
The ExPASy (Expert Protein Analysis System) proteomics server of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) is dedicated to the analysis of protein sequences and structures as well as 2-D PAGE.
Acids Research:2000 Biological Database Issue
Nucleic Acids Research (NAR)
publishes the results of leading edge research into physical,
chemical, biochemical and biological aspects of nucleic acids and
proteins involved in nucleic acid metabolism and/or interactions. It
enables the rapid publication of papers under the following
categories: chemistry, computational biology, genomics, molecular
biology, RNA and structural biology. A Survey and Summary section
provides a format for brief reviews. The first issue of each year is
devoted to biological databases, and an issue in July is devoted to
papers describing web-based software resources of value to the
Protein Database HOME PAGE
Six database volumes
of biological information about proteins comprise Incyte's Proteome
BioKnowledge Library. Each volume focuses on a different organism
important in pharmaceutical research.
SGDTM is a
scientific database of the molecular biology and genetics of the
yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is commonly known as
baker's or budding yeast.
Breast Cancer Gene Database
A database of genes involved in breast cancer.
It is similar to the Tumor Gene Database (below) but limited in
scope to those genes involved in human breast cancer and thus will
be able to go into greater depth. The criteria for a gene to be
included in this database are that it has been shown to be involved
in human breast cancer (rather than an animal model) and that there
is some evidence that it plays a functional role in the induction or
progression of breast cancer.
Mammary Transgene Interactive Database
This is an interactive database of literature
on research designed to target transgene proteins to the mammary
gland. Current emphasis is on biotechnology applications. Addition
of tumor model and developmental model literature is planned.
Small RNA database
Small RNAs are broadly defined as the RNAs not
directly involved in protein synthesis. These are grouped under
three categories: l) Capped small RNAs; 2) Noncapped small RNAs; and
3) Viral small RNAs. Sequences and references are included, and you
can do wais searching with a keyword.
Tumor Gene Database
A database of genes associated with
tumorigenesis and cellular transformation. This database includes
oncogenes, proto-oncogenes, tumor supressor genes/anti-oncogenes,
regulators and substrates of the above, regions believed to contain
such genes such as tumor-associated chromosomal break points and
viral integration sites, and other genes and chromosomal regions
that seems relevant.
