Have you checked out the Online Bioinformatics Resource Collection (OBRC) brought to you by the University of Pittsburgh's Health Sciences Library System?
The OBRC is a manually curated collection of biolnformatics databases and software tools. Search for topic or tool of interest among the annotations and links for 2440 bioinformatics databases and software tools. Need to find out what tools can be used for phosphorylation? Enter the term and see what you get!
MIT Libraries has obtained a license for the Human Gene Mutations Database (HGMD). HGMD represents a comprehensive collection of data available on germ-line mutations in nuclear genes underlying or associated with human inherited disease.
Search for newly identified gene lesions to determine whether or not they are novel; search by gene to get an overview of the known mutational spectrum for that gene; and search for a type of mutation in a specific location.
HGMD is integrated with other bioscience resources such as OMIM, Entrez Gene and the Human Gene Nomenclature Committee. The free version of HGMD only contains 3 year old data while the licensed version contains current data and a better search interface, so take advantage of this great resource!
NCBI now has a pathway tool available FREE!
NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) -- collection public databases for research in computational biology, genome data, and biomedical information.
Ensembl -- software system which produces and maintains automatic annotation on selected eukaryotic genomes.
GenePattern -- analysis workflow tool developed to support multidisciplinary genomic research program.
BLAST -- analysis tool that finds regions of similarity between biological sequences.
LigerCat is a PubMed search tool that uses tag clouds to show important concepts and trends. LigerCat aggregates multiple articles in PubMed, summing their MeSH descriptors and presenting them in a cloud, weighted by frequency.
MeSH is PubMed's controlled vocabulary.
