Termini-Oriented Protein Function INferred Database
TopFIND is a protein-centric database for the annotation of protein termini currently in its third version. Non-canonical protein termini can be the result of multiple different biological processes, including pre-translational processes such as alternative splicing and alternative translation initiation or post-translational protein processing by proteases that cleave proteases as part of protein maturation or as a regulatory modification. Accordingly, protein termini evidence in TopFIND is inferred from other databases such as ENSEMBL transcripts, TISdb for alternative translation initiation, MEROPS for protein cleavage by proteases, and UniProt for canonical and protein isoform start sites. Additionally, termini are annotated from user submitted lists of termini and inferred from user submitted lists of cleavage sites. As a protein-centric database, TopFIND presents a website for each protein isoform (organized around UniProt accession codes). These websites contain general protein information, such as organism, chromosome location, and proteins sequence. They then list position information such as specific termini evidences, known cleavage sites, sequence features and domains for each protein. In addition, TopFIND shows each protein in the context of the protease web, a network of proteases and their inhibitors, where a protease can cleave of other proteases and their inhibitors thus influencing their activity. All information in TopFIND can be filtered by a powerful filter engine that relies on rich annotation as to the origin of data in TopFIND. TopFIND can also be programmatically queried using the PSICQUIC or XML API. Recently, software tools were developed to enable quick access to TopFIND data for lists of termini obtained by, for example, proteomic termini screens (terminomics). TopFIND Explorer “TopFINDer” reports position specific protein information for protein termini, such as terminus evidences, prime and non-prime sequences, and protein domains affected by cleavage. TopFINDer further reports summary statistics for protein cleavage by known proteases.

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.

Compartmentalized Protein-Protein Interaction
The compartmentalized protein-protein interaction database (ComPPI), provides qualitative information on the interactions, proteins and their localizations integrated from multiple databases for protein-protein interaction network analysis.

The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal - OpenImmport
The ImmPort system serves as a long-term, sustainable archive of immunology research data generated by investigators mainly funded through the NIAID/DAIT. The core component of the ImmPort system is an extensive data warehouse containing an integration of experimental data and clinical trial data. The analytical tools created and integrated as part of the ImmPort system are available to any researcher within ImmPort after registration and approval by DAIT. Additionally, the data provided mainly by NIAID/DAIT funded researchers in ImmPort will be available to all registered users after the appropriate embargo time. ImmPort, is the data submission portal where researchers upload, QC, and curate their data prior to sharing in OpenImmPort.

Colorectal Cancer Atlas
Colorectral Cancer Atlas is an web-based resource which integrates genomic and proteomic pertaining to colorectal cancer cell lines and tissues. Data catalogued includes, quantitative and non-quantitative protein expression, sequence variations, cellular signaling pathways, protein-protein interactions, Gene Ontology terms, protein domains and post-translational modifications (PTMs).

The GeneWeaver data and analytics website is a publically available resource for storing, curating and analyzing sets of genes from heterogeneous data sources. The system enables discovery of relationships among genes, variants, traits, drugs, environments, anatomical structures and diseases implicitly found through gene set intersections. By enumerating the common and distinct biological molecules associated with all subsets of curated or user submitted groups of gene sets and gene networks, GeneWeaver empowers users with the ability to construct data driven descriptions of shared and unique biological processes, diseases and traits within and across species.

SwissLipids is an expert-curated resource that provides a framework for the integration of lipid and lipidomic data with biological knowledge and models. SwissLipids is updated daily.

Ascidian Network for In Situ Expression and Embryological Data
Aniseed is a database designed to offer a representation of ascidian embryonic development at the level of the genome (cis-regulatory sequences, spatial gene expression, protein annotation), of the cell (cell shapes, fate, lineage) or of the whole embryo (anatomy, morphogenesis).

MitoCheck aims to integrate information on cellular function of human genes while giving access to supporting information such as microscopy images of phenotypes

Image Data Repository
IDR is a prototype platform for publishing, mining and integrating bioimaging data at scale, following the Euro-BioImaging/ELIXIR imaging strategy using the OMERO and Bio-Formats open source software built by the Open Microscopy Environment. Deployed on an OpenStack cloud running on the EMBL-EBI’s Embassy resource, it includes image data linked to independent studies from genetic, RNAi, chemical, localisation and geographic high content screens, super-resolution microscopy, and digital pathology.

Banana Genome Hub
The Banana Genome Hub centralises databases of genetic and genomic data for the Musa acuminata crop, and is the official portal for the Musa genome resources.

REGULATOR is a metazoan transcription factor (TF) and maternal factor resource, specifically designed for developmental biology studies. Maternal factors were expressed in unfertilized eggs, and gradually reduced as time goes on. In order to reduce the search space of developmentally important genes, we only focused on those specifically expressed genes in egg stages, whose expression value ≥ 8 times than the mean value of others. There are ~77 metazoan species in the current database. The identification of TFs was based on statistical information similarity of protein features.

Orthologous MAtrix
The OMA (“Orthologous MAtrix”) project is a method and database for the inference of orthologs among complete genomes. The distinctive features of OMA are its broad scope and size, high quality of inferences, feature-rich web interface, availability of data in a wide range of formats and interfaces, and frequent update schedule of two releases per year.

Ensembl Bacteria
Over 30,000 genome sequences from bacteria and archaea have been annotated and deposited in the public archives of the members of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration. This site provides access to complete, annotated genomes from bacteria and archaea (present in the European Nucleotide Archive) through the Ensembl graphical user interface (genome browser).

Ensembl Protists
From release 27 release onwards, all protist genomes whose sequence and annotation has been completed and submitted to the the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (i.e. the ENA, GenBank and DDBJ databases) are now available in Ensembl Protists. The release now consists of a total of over 150 genomes, of which over 100 have been taken directly from the INSDC archives and the remainder taken from other sources. The new genomes have been functionally annotated with InterPro entries and GO terms using InterPro v53.

Ensembl Plants
A new genome assembly of Triticum aestivum cv. Chinese Spring is now available in Ensembl Plants. The assembly (TGACv1) and it's accompanying annotation was produced by the Earlham Institute, formerly The Centre for Genome Analysis (TGAC), as part of the Triticeae Genomics for Sustainable Agriculture project.
