View Resource Biology WorkBench

From the San Diego Supercomputer Center, "the Biology WorkBench allows biologists to search many popular protein and nucleic acid sequence databases." After the free registration, users have access to a variety of molecular data sequencing and visualization tools through "a common point-and-click Web interface." New users may want to select the tutorials link, which includes several documents that...

View Resource PlantsT: Functional Genomics of Plant Transporters

This database from the University of California and the San Diego Supercomputer Center "is part of the Plant Genome Program for the National Science Foundation." The information contained within the site focuses on genes involved in transport and uptake of plant nutrients. Users can perform a variety of different searches and limit the results by species, if desired. Users can also register to...

View Resource DNA Data Bank of Japan

The DNA Data Bank of Japan collects DNA sequence data and assigns internationally recognized accession numbers mainly from Japanese researchers. It is one of the International DNA Databases that shares data on a daily basis with the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL) and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI); as a result, all three sources should provide the same...

View Resource UniGene

Created by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, UniGene is "an experimental system for automatically partitioning GenBank sequences into a non-redundant set of gene-oriented clusters." In addition to gene sequences, this Web site also offers thousands of novel expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences, a useful gene discovery resource. Organisms currently cataloged include human, rat,...

View Resource Gramene: A Comparative Mapping Resource for Grains

Gramene is a "curated, open-source, Web-accessible data resource for comparative genome analysis in the grasses," funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. The searchable database, containing data derived from related public projects, may be queried with the rice genome browser, blast search, map search, or phenotype search, to name just a few. Gramene is frequently updated; recent...

View Resource NCBI Trace Archive

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of the National Library of Medicine offers the Trace Archive -- "a repository of the raw sequence traces generated by large sequencing projects." The Trace Archive is the sole source of raw sequence data for projects that rely on a Whole Genome Shotgun strategy. Users can search the archive by BLAST or by a number of other query options. The...

View Resource GOBASE: The Organelle Genome Database

GOBASE is "a taxonomically broad organelle genome database that organizes and integrates diverse data related to organelles." Provided by the University of Montreal, GOBASE focuses on mitochondria and chloroplasts, although future versions will cover the bacterial ancestors of these organelles as well. The GOBASE Web site contains separate easy-to-use search engines for mitochondrial and...
