Databases on the Internet


Public databases with information on gene sequences, genome organization, protein structures, and metabolic pathways.

KEGG 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 sequencing projects.
NCBI 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 sequence).
EBI European Bioinformatics Institute. This server offers a general sequence and structure analysis database.
PDB 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.
Swiss 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).
Center 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.
