Implementing Databases (19)
EcoliWiki: A Wiki-based community resource for Escherichia coli
Community-based resource for the annotation of all non-pathogenic E. coli, its phages, plasmids, and mobile genetic elements.

FlyBase
Genetic, genomic and molecular information pertaining to the model organism Drosophila melanogaster and related sequences. This database also contains information relating to human disease models in Drosophila, the use of transgenic constructs containing sequence from other organisms in Drosophila, and information on where to buy Drosophila strains and constructs.

Fungal and Oomycete genomics resource
FungiDB is an integrated genomic and functional genomic database for the kingdom Fungi. The database integrates whole genome sequence and annotation and also includes experimental and environmental isolate sequence data. The database includes comparative genomics, analysis of gene expression, and supplemental bioinformatics analyses and a web interface for data-mining.

modMine
modMine is an integrated web resource of data & tools to browse and search modENCODE data and experimental details, download results and access the GBrowse genome browser.

Saccharomyces Genome Database
The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) collects and organizes information about the molecular biology and genetics of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. SGD contains a variety of biological information and tools with which to search and analyze it.

The Arabidopsis Information Resource
The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) maintains a database of genetic and molecular biology data for the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

PomBase
PomBase is a model organism database that provides organization of and access to scientific data for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. PomBase supports genomic sequence and features, genome-wide datasets and manual literature curation as well as providing structural and functional annotation and access to large-scale data sets.

Stem Cell Discovery Engine
Comparison system for cancer stem cell analysis

The UCSC Archaeal Genome Browser
The UCSC Archaeal Genome Browser is a window on the biology of more than 100 microbial species from the domain Archaea. Basic gene annotation is derived from NCBI Genbank/RefSeq entries, with overlays of sequence conservation across multiple species, nucleotide and protein motifs, non-coding RNA predictions, operon predictions, and other types of bioinformatic analyses. In addition, we display available gene expression data (microarray or high-throughput RNA sequencing). Direct contributions or notices of publication of functional genomic data or bioinformatic analyses from archaeal research labs are very welcome.

WormBase
WormBase is an international consortium of biologists and computer scientists dedicated to providing the research community with accurate, current, accessible information concerning the genetics, genomics and biology of C. elegans and related nematodes.

Gramene, a comparative mapping resource for grains
Gramene's purpose is to provide added value to data sets available within the public sector, which will facilitate researchers' ability to understand the grass genomes and take advantage of genomic sequence known in one species for identifying and understanding corresponding genes, pathways and phenotypes in other grass species.

Daphnia Water Flea Genome Database
wFleaBase includes data from all species of the genus, yet the primary species are Daphnia pulex and Daphnia magna, because of the broad set of genomic tools that have already been developed for these animals.

Mouse Genome Database - a Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) Resource
MGI is the international database resource for the laboratory mouse, providing integrated genetic, genomic, and biological data to facilitate the study of human health and disease. Data includes gene characterization, nomenclature, mapping, gene homologies among mammals, sequence links, phenotypes, allelic variants and mutants, and strain data.

MouseMine @ MGI
A database of integrated mouse data from MGI, powered by InterMine. MouseMine is member of InterMOD, a consortium of model organism databases dedicated to making cross-species data analysis easier through ongoing coordination and collaborative system development.

ClinVar
ClinVar is a freely accessible, public archive of reports of the relationships among human variations and phenotypes, with supporting evidence. ClinVar thus facilitates access to and communication about the relationships asserted between human variation and observed health status, and the history of that interpretation. ClinVar processes submissions reporting variants found in patient samples, assertions made regarding their clinical significance, information about the submitter, and other supporting data. The alleles described in submissions are mapped to reference sequences, and reported according to the HGVS standard. ClinVar then presents the data for interactive users as well as those wishing to use ClinVar in daily workflows and other local applications. ClinVar works in collaboration with interested organizations to meet the needs of the medical genetics community as efficiently and effectively as possible.

ENCODE Project
The ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) Consortium is an international collaboration of research groups funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). The goal of ENCODE is to build a comprehensive parts list of functional elements in the human genome, including elements that act at the protein and RNA levels, and regulatory elements that control cells and circumstances in which a gene is active.

dictyBase
A single-access database for the genome of four Dictyostelid species providing information on research, genome and annotations. There is also a repository of plasmids and strains held at the Dicty Stock Centre.

Open Targets
Open Targets designed and developed an integration and visualization platform that provides evidence about the association of known and potential drug targets with diseases. The platform is designed to support identification and prioritization of biological targets for follow-up. Each drug target is linked to a disease using integrated genome-wide data from a broad range of data sources. The platform provides either a target-centric workflow to identify diseases that may be associated with a specific target, or a disease-centric workflow to identify targets that may be associated with a specific disease. Users can easily transition between these target- and disease-centric workflows.

Rfam
The Rfam database is a collection of RNA families, each represented by multiple sequence alignments, consensus secondary structures and covariance models (CMs).
