NeuroMorpho.org

database

Provider: George Mason University
Contents: , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: NeuroMorpho.Org is the largest collection to date of publicly-accessible 3-D neuronal reconstructions and associated metadata in a curated repository. It contains a Neuron Atlas (a spatial distribution visualization tool.) Neurons from more than 20 species are represented. Browse by species, brain region, cell type or source; search by keyword, metadata or morphometry. The What’s new page has information on newly-released data, including new species strains, brain regions, cell types, and experimental conditions. The Acknowledgements include details on contributing labs, and the About page provides an updated overview of the repository content. OntoSearch enables more powerful searches of species and strains with automated synonym translation, taxonomical relations, and keyword auto-completion. The literature coverage database includes publications through March 2014.

GoPubMed

database

Provider: Transinsight
Contents: , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: GoPubMed is an innovative, powerful search tool that combines the MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) and GO (Gene Ontology) terminologies to optimize the effectiveness of queries to PubMed- for everyone, but for molecular biologists in particular. Searching elicits results presented very quickly (maximum display: the most recent 1,000 citations), along with a sidebar presenting the full results in categorized, hierarchical groups of terms that help the user to focus in further- the producers of this search engine refer to it as a "knowledge-based semantic search." There are many more features to this search tool than can be described here.

Cell, the: An Image Libary

database

Provider: American Society for Cell Biology
Contents: , , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: Supported by an award from National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and NIH, this is a peer-reviewed repository of thousands of often stunning microscopic images of cell types, processes and components. Most are free to use or under Creative Commons license by the authors, rather than restricted by publisher copyright. Free sign-in gives the user the ability to save images in a folder. Broader features like multiple public and private folders, sharing and annotation are in development. Many videos are also posted. Researchers are urged to contribute from their own work and experiments. For more information on the intent and the many current as well as future features of the database, read more at Leica Science Lab.

1000 Genomes

database

Provider: 1000 Genomes
Contents: , , , ,
Access Level:
Descriptions: 1000 Genomes: a deep catalog of human genetic variation "...is the first project to sequence the genomes of a large number of people, to provide a comprehensive resource on human genetic variation... The goal of the 1000 Genomes Project is to find most genetic variants that have frequencies of at least 1% in the populations studied." 1000 Genomes is an international endeavor, with participants from institutes, governments and universities world-wide. "DNA from the samples will be available for researchers to follow up with more detailed studies of variation in particular regions. The cell lines will allow researches to study cellular phenotypes such as gene expression, epigenetic patterns, and drug response. The extensive genotype data available on the samples, and the trio samples for some of the populations, will allow researchers to map regions of the genome computationally that affect the cellular phenotypes, and to study the heritability of these phenotypes."
