Protein and Gene Family Databases


A large database describing the families of structurally related catalytic and carbohydrate-related binding modules and functional domains of enzymes that degrade, create or modify glycosidic linkages


The Eukaryotic Promoter Database is a resource that deals with Eukaryotic transcription regulation


The ExPASy (Expert Protein Analysis System) proteomics server of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) is dedicated to the analysis of protein sequences and structures as well as 2-D PAGE


A protease database


Phytozome a plant comparative genomics and proteomics portal. Families of related genes are constructed at key phylogenetic nodes with easy access to clade-specific orthology/paralogy relationships as well as insights into clade-specific novelties and expansions.


A transport protein database


A database on eukaryotic transcriptional regulation

Clustering Databases


The database of Clusters of Orthologous Groups of Proteins (COGs)


ProDom provides automated analysis of protein domains

Protein Signature Databases


Prosite is a database of patterns and profiles


Pfam is a collection of multiple protein sequence alignments and provides a good resource of models for identifying protein families, domains and repeats


The SMART database facilitates the identification and annotation of genetically mobile domains and the analysis of domain structures


TIGRFAMs groups homologous proteins that are conserved with respect to function

Integrated Derived Databases


iProClass links ProClass, PIR-ALN, PROSITE, Pfam and Blocks into a single database providing family relationships and structural features of protein sequences


CDD is a database of domains derived from SMART, Pfam and contributions from NCBI LOAD (Library Of Ancient Domains) and use an algorithm to identify conserved domains in protein sequences


Interpro integrates diagnostic protein signatures from PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, SMART and TIGRFAMs

Arabidopsis Databases


Arabidopsis gene mapping tool

T-DNA Express

Interpro integrates diagnostic protein signatures from PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam, SMART and TIGRFAMs

Other Databases


A Comprehensive Systems Biology Data Base


MetaCyc is a database of nonredundant, experimentally elucidated metabolic pathways from more than 300 different organisms


National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analyzing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information


A database of plant cis-acting regulatory DNA elements

Literature Search

Web of Knowledge

Web of Knowledge is a dynamic, fully integrated environment that provides one source for high quality content and tools to access, analyze, and manage research information


PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine, includes over 15 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950's
