The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to genomic and biomedical information. View the full list of NCBI resources here
A list of educational NCBI resources:
NCBI hosts several bioinformatic databases as well as analytical resources. Below are a few of the more popular databases.
Entrez: Cross Database Search Page.
Gene: Gene integrates information from a wide range of species. A record may include nomenclature, maps, RefSeqs, pathways, variants, phenotypes, and links to genome, phenotype, and locus-specific resources.
Gene Expression Omnibus Profiles: NCBI repository that contains individual gene expression profiles from curated DataSets.
Genome Contains sequence and map data from the whole genomes of over 1000 organisms. The genomes represent both completely sequenced organisms and those for which sequencing is in progress. All three main domains of life bacteria, archaea, and eukaryota are represented, as well as many viruses, viroids, phages, plasmids, and organelles.
NCBI OMIM A database of human genes and genetic disorders. OMIM does not contain GWAS data, only references to studies related to a specific phenotype or genotype. NCBI maintains current content and continues to support its searching and integration with other NCBI databases. It's official home is omim.org
MEDGEN A database that organizes information related to human medical genetics, such as attributes of conditions with a genetic contribution. One can use MEDGEN to search for relationships between specific genes and medical conditions.
NCBI Nucleotide database is a collection of sequences from different sources including RefSeq, GenBank, the Third Party Annotation (TPA) database, and PDB. Gene and transcript sequence data are essential for biomedical research and discovery.
There are a number of data repositories designed for specific data types, such as:
Taxonomic and Species Diversity
General and/or Cross-Disciplinary
PMC is now aggregating data citations, data availability statements and supplementary materials, as available, in an Associated Data box. This box will only display on articles that have one or more of these features in the article. To limit your search to records with an Associated Data box, you can use the new "Associated Data" facet on the search results page
Open Access Data
There are a number of multidisciplinary open source data archives.
