It contains information on depression, bipolar disorder, alcohol use disorders and cocaine. The database was developed by applying text mining tools to extract information from the scientific literature. The document describing the curation guidelines, providing a resource for the development and evaluation of text mining systems, is available in the web portal.
WholeCellKB
Deals with cellular processes into Mycoplasma genitalium. WholeCellKB consists of a repository of whole-cell models which mainly focuses on assisting users in performs whole-cell simulations. Information is organized according to more than 10 sections including specifications about its subcellular organization, the binding sites and footprint of every DNA-binding protein and the organization and promoter of each transcription unit.
Ebola-KB / Ebola virus-centered Knowledge Base
An Ebola virus-centered Knowledge Base using linked data and semantic web technologies. Ebola-KB aggregates knowledge from several open data sources, web services and biomedical ontologies. This knowledge is transformed to RDF, linked to the Bio2RDF datasets and made available through a SPARQL 1.1 endpoint. Ebola-KB can also be explored using an interactive dashboard visualizing the different perspectives of this integrated knowledge.
kpath
Integrates information related to metabolic pathways. kpath also provides a navigational interface that enables not only the browsing, but also the deep use of the integrated data to build metabolic networks based on existing disperse knowledge. This user interface has been used to showcase relationships that can be inferred from the information available in several public databases.
dbHiMo
A web-based genomics platform for histone-modifying enzymes (HMEs) by using HMM sequence profiles. The dbHiMo provides users with web-based personalized data browsing and analysis tools, supporting comparative and evolutionary genomics. With comprehensive data entries and associated web-based tools, dbHiMo will be a valuable resource for future epigenetics/epigenomics studies.
CMRegNet
Provides easy access to a total of 3,103 known regulations in C. glutamicum ATCC 13032 and M. tuberculosis H37Rv and to 38,940 evolutionary conserved interactions for 18 non-model species of the CMNR group. This makes CMRegNet to date the most comprehensive database of regulatory interactions of CMNR bacteria. CMRegNet is accessible by a user-friendly online interface.
EMDataBank
A unified global portal for deposition and retrieval of 3DEM density maps, atomic models, and associated metadata, as well as a resource for news, events, software tools, data standards, validation methods for the 3DEM community. EMDataBank unifies public access to the two major archives containing EM-based structural data: EM Data Bank (EMDB) and Protein Data Bank (PDB), and facilitates use of EM structural data of macromolecules and macromolecular complexes by the wider scientific community.
GSR / Genetic Simulation Resources
A website provided by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) that aims to help researchers compare and choose the appropriate simulation tools for their studies. This website allows authors of simulation software to register their applications and describe them with well-defined attributes, thus allowing site users to search and compare simulators according to specified features.
HPID / Human Protein Interaction Database
It was designed (1) to provide human protein interaction information pre-computed from existing structural and experimental data, (2) to predict potential interactions between proteins submitted by users and (3) to provide a depository for new human protein interaction data from users. Two types of interaction are available from the pre-computed data: (1) interactions at the protein superfamily level and (2) those transferred from the interactions of yeast proteins.
MiDAS / Microbial Database for Activated Sludge
Gathers information about the morphology, ecophysiology, abundance and distribution of genus members in full-scale treatment systems with phylotype identity. MiDAS was primarily a taxonomic database curated for abundant and process important phylotypes for activated sludge wastewater treatment systems with biological nutrient removal. The repository also includes the organisms of the anaerobic digestion community and the most abundant influent wastewater organisms.
HCSD / Human Cancer Secretome Database
A comprehensive database for human cancer secretome data. The cancer secretome describes proteins secreted by cancer cells and structuring information about the cancer secretome will enable further analysis of how this is related with tumor biology. The results are visualized in an explicit and interactive manner. An example of a result page includes annotations, cross references, cancer secretome data and secretory features for each identified protein.
SInCRe / Structural Interactome Computational Resource
An integrated database for Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv (Mtb) that collates information on protein sequences, domain assignments, functional annotation and 3D structural information along with protein-protein and protein-small molecule interactions. The motivation for development of this database is to provide an integrated platform to allow easily access and interpretation of data and results obtained by all the groups in CamBan in the field of Mtb informatics.
MEMA
Automates the detection of mutations and the extraction of mutation–gene pairs. The result is a database of such pairs. MEMA identified 24 351 singleton mutations in conjunction with a HUGO gene name out of 16 728 abstracts.
