Descriptions: Springer Protocols is a comprehensive, trusted online database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the biomedical and life sciences. Taken from the series Methods in Molecular Biology and numerous other sources, this collection offers researchers access to decades of step-by-step protocols. With an emphasis on clarity, each one is organized in an easily-reproduced, recipe format. Protocols are written by experts in the field, and reviewed first by distinguished editors with the specific expertise, then by Springer's editorial staff. Contains some open-access protocols.

Access Level: Free, Open Access
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: full text, open-source
Access Level: Free, Open Access
Descriptions: A bio- and chemical informatics resource that combines detailed drug (chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug targeting (sequence, structure, and pathway) information. The database contains nearly 4300 drug entries, including FDA-approved small molecule drugs, FDA-approved biotech (protein/peptide) drugs, "nutraceuticals" and experimental drugs. Contains more than 6,800 drug entries with almost 4,300 non-redundant protein sequences linked. Each entry, or DrugCard, contains more than 80 data fields, half of which are devoted to drug/chemical data and the other half to drug target/protein data. Downloads and information on rights, acknowledgement and usage are available here.
