Abstract

Database of Databases (DoD) is a collection of molecular biology databases extracted from Nucleic Acids Research, 2005 Database issue. DoD is constructed using javascript and html code. The 14 categories of 719 databases are provided with a search option, keyword help and database description linked to respective pages. Keyword help lists the search strings used to perform an individual search against categorized databases. Database description provides brief information about the database with a link to full-text article and main web page. DoD is available online and can be accessed at http://www.progenebio.in/DoD/DoD.htm.


Keywords: molecular biology databases, nucleotide sequence databases, RNA sequence databases, protein sequence databases, structure databases, genomics databases, metabolic & signaling pathways, human and vertebrate genomes, human genes and diseases, microarray data and gene expression databases, proteomics resources, organelle databases, plant databases, immunological databases
