Databases & web tools

In parallel with the advanced in genomic technologies that are churning out astronomical data, numerous database and tools are been developed, making it difficult, for an average biologist to choose from. A good starting point could be the collection of molecular biology databases published in the journal Nucleic Acid Research, the latest (at the time of the conference) being volume 38, Database issue (http://www.oxfordjournals.org/nar/database/c/).

Comprehensive and Integrated Biological Data

Choosing databases and web servers

It is challenging for biologists to choose the right tool amid the explosive growth of web sites and tools. It is absolutely important that users distinguish between personal web sites and reliable peer-reviewed and up-to-date resources. The challenge is how to choose from the multitude of databases and tools available. A good starting point could be the collection of molecular biology databases published in the journal Nucleic Acid Research, the latest being volume 38, Database issue
(http://www.oxfordjournals.org/nar/database/c/).

NCBI and EMBL provide access to a comprehensive and integrated collection of biological data worldwide. Such integrated system is particularly useful for beginners as it eliminates the need for formatting input/output data for various interrelated suites of applications.

Bioinformatics Software and Tools

This website is dedicated to the researchers in the field of molecular biology. It harbors several useful links to bioinformatics online tools and software.

The universal resource locator of these websites usually changes due to several reasons. It is a Herculean task and really difficult to track the changes every time by a single person. The web-links can be maintained up to date only by collaborative help of the researchers by furnishing information regarding the change in web-site address.Click for full site http://bioinformaticssoftwareandtools.co.in/index.html.
