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.

Cancer Genome Anatomy Project (CGAP)

website

Provider: National Cancer Institute
Descriptions: This is a section of the National Cancer Institute website designed specifically for researchers. "The goal of the NCI's Cancer Genome Anatomy Project is to determine the gene expression profiles of normal, precancer, and cancer cells, leading eventually to improved detection, diagnosis, and treatment for the patient. By collaborating with scientists worldwide, CGAP seeks to increase its scientific expertise and expand its databases for the benefit of all cancer researchers. Interconnected modules provide access to all CGAP data, bioinformatics... and biological resources, allowing the user to find "in silico" answers to biological questions in a fraction of the time it once took in the laboratory."

GigaDB

database

Provider: GigaScience and BGI
Contents: , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: GigaDB is an open repository of datasets that support the research published in the open access BioMed Central bioinformatics journal, GigaScience. GigaDB provides a place from which to download supporting data and tools associated with papers published in GigaScience, thus facilitating the reproducibility of research. DataCite DOIs are assigned to these accompanying datasets, an identification device which serves to facilitate tracking and discoverability, and to provide additional credit to the authors who make their data publicly available.

Gene Ontology

database

Provider: Gene Ontology Project
Contents: , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: "The Gene Ontology project is a major bioinformatics initiative with the aim of standardizing the representation of gene and gene product attributes across species and databases. The project provides a controlled vocabulary of terms for describing gene product characteristics and gene product annotation data from GO Consortium members, as well as tools to access and process this data."  The Ontologies describe three aspects of molecular biology- biological processes, cellular components, and molecular functions. Gene Ontology's collected tools list includes hundreds from all over the world: specialized browsers, search engines, statistical analysis and visualization tools, and many other kinds. This project began as a collaboration between three model organism databases, FlyBase (Drosophila), the Saccharomyces Genome Database  and the Mouse Genome Database  in 1998. Since then, the GO Consortium has grown to include many other databases, including several of the world's major repositories for plant, animal and microbial genomes. See the GO Consortium page for a full list of member organizations.

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."
