GenomeNet

website

Provider: Kyoto University Bioinformatics Center
Descriptions: GenomeNet is a network of database and computational services for genome research and related research areas in biomedical sciences, operated by the Kyoto University Bioinformatics Center. The service was first developed at Kyoto University as part of a group of research projects begun in 1991 under the Japanese human genome program. It includes bioinformatics tools in sequence, chemical and genome analysis; community databases dealing with cyanobacteria, bacillus subtilis, and gene expression profiles; ontologies; and more. The KEGG database, which has its own entry in this list, is a part of GenomeNet.

PharmGKB: Pharmacogenomics Knowledge Base

website

Provider: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/Stanford University
Descriptions: PharmGKB's mission is "to collect, encode, and disseminate knowledge about the impact of human genetic variations on drug response. We curate primary genotype and phenotype data, annotate gene variants and gene-drug-disease relationships via literature review, and summarize important PGx genes and drug pathways."

NextBio

website

Provider: NextBio
Descriptions: NextBio Basic is a free web application providing access to a 'curated, correlated database' of public data which also integrates literature, clinical trials and scientific news. Its semantic framework is based on gene, tissue, disease and compound ontologies. A single search for information on a gene yields results categorically arranged on a single page: an overview of the gene's functions; a list of tissues in which the gene is expressed; diseases and compounds relating to the gene; a list of the top topic-associated researchers and authors; literature, associated clinical trials, and more. Registered users of this application (registration for this basic version is free) can personalize their experience, communicate, collaborate and share data with the rest of the NextBio community.
