Descriptions: SpringerProtocols is said to be the most comprehensive and trustworthy online database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the biomedical and life sciences. From the book series Methods in Molecular Biology and numerous other sources, this collection offers researchers access to decades of step-by-step protocols for use in the lab. With an emphasis on clarity, each protocol is organized in an easily-reproduced, recipe style. All protocols have been written by experts in the field, and are reviewed first by editors distinguished in the relevant specific subject areas, and then by Springer's own editorial staff. Contains some open-access protocols. Mobile version of website available.

Gene Ontology


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.

Contents: , , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: The BioMart project provides free software and data services to the international scientific community in order to foster scientific collaboration and facilitate the scientific discovery process. The project adheres to the open source philosophy of promoting collaboration and code reuse. The majority of the contributed databases are of plant or human genomics-oriented data. Under Community, view the linked database list with descriptions and contributor names. Databases originate from the UK, USA, France, Spain, China and other countries. There are three separate portal websites-- the central "Bio" portal, a cancer portal, and one for mouse data.  Unfortunately, no link back to BioMart is provided once the user accesses one of the other portals.
