Gene Databases
  • Quick Links

*   Gene Cards
A searchable, integrated database of human genes that provides concise genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic, genetic and functional information
*   iHop
Allows researchers to explore a network of gene interactions by directly navigating the pool of published scientific literature
*   Mouse Genome Informatics
MGI is the international database resource for the laboratory mouse, providing integrated genetic, genomic, and biological data

*   Entrez Gene
Searches many Databases and maintains information about genes from genomes of interest
*   BLAST Sequence Similarity Searching
Compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases for regions of local similarity between sequences
*   Database of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms 
A public database of single base nucleotide substitutions and short deletion and insertion polymorphisms. Users can search for and submitt SNPs.
*   Electronic PCR
Allows search for sub-sequences that closely match the PCR primers and have the correct order, orientation, and spacing
*   UniGene: Unique Human Gene Sequence Collection
A set of transcript sequences that appear to come from the same transcription locus, together with information on protein similarities, gene expression, cDNA clone reagents, and genomic location
*   dbEST: Database of Expressed Sequence Tags
Contains sequence data and other information on "single-pass" cDNA sequences, or "Expressed Sequence Tags", from a number of organisms
*   dbGSS: Database of Genome Survey Sequences
Contains sequence data and other information on sequences that are genomic in origin, rather than cDNA (mRNA)
*   dbSTS: Database of Sequence Tagged Sites
resource that contains sequence data for short genomic landmark sequences or Sequence Tagged Sites
*   ORF Finder
A graphical analysis tool which finds all open reading frames of a user's sequence or in a sequence already in the database
*   NCBI Structure tool and Molecular Modelling Database
Resources for macromolecular structures, conserved domains and protein classification, small molecules and their biological activity and biological systems
*   Cancer Genome Anatomy Project
A program by NCI for the information and tools needed to decipher the molecular anatomy of the cancer cell
*   Gene Map of the Human Genome
An updated map of human genome
*   NCBI Taxonomy
Direct links to some of the organisms commonly used in molecular research projects
*   OMIM: Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man
a comprehensive, authoritative, and timely compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes
*   Human/Mouse Homology Maps
Provides quick access to the Comparative mapping functions available in the Map Viewer. Maps are calculated using HomoloGene orthology predictions
*   Mouse Tumor database
Jackson Lab and NCI provide data on tumour and tissue type, with information on pathology and mice strains for mouse as a model of hereditary cancer
