Databases on the Internet
Public databases with information on gene sequences, genome organization, protein
structures, and metabolic pathways.
Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes
and Genomes (Genome
Net Japan). KEGG is an effort to computerize current knowledge
of molecular and cellular biology in terms of the information
pathways that consist of interacting molecules or genes and
to provide links from the gene catalogs produced by genome
National Center for Biotechnology Information (US government). This server provides general sequence
and structure analysis tools and databases (GenBank's Entrez
and Blast), biomedical literature search (PubMed), complete
genome information, the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man
database (human genes and genetic disorders), and taxonomy information
(contains the names of all organisms that are represented in
the genetic databases with at least one nucleotide or protein
European Bioinformatics Institute.
This server offers a general sequence and structure analysis
Protein Data Bank. Searchable
database for protein and nucleic acid high resolution
structures at Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics
(RCSB). All structures are obtained experimentally by protein
crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance.
Prot Expasy is a molecular
biology and structure server at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics
(SIB). This server is dedicated to the analysis of protein sequences
and structures as well as 2-D PAGE (Proteomics).
for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) A federal agency of the US Government
with the mission of promoting health and preventing diseases
through research and the dissemination of relevant information
to the public.
World Health Organization (WHO) is the United Nations scientific body that coordinates health and safety related issues for all member nations. Diseases and a healthy environment are important for all humans and require world wide attention. The WHO works closely with all member nations's health organization such as the CDC.
