Databases Gone Wild: DNA Repair Database

Dec 02 2011 Published by under Database

So I'm going to be a homer for my own subfield today and present to you folks the DNA Repair Database run by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.  If you ever wanted to know what proteins were involved in DNA repair, which specific pathways, and various orthologs this is the website to go to.  It serves as a nice landing spot for you to look up information on these genes (links to GenBank, etc.).  And not to call you guys out any but I think you are missing a few proteins, but overall its a fun little database.

So if you folks liked the database content I can keep this going for another week, or if you can think of some cool databases to look at, drop me a comment.  Thanks

    Hmmmm, I have the sneaking suspicion that my comment got eaten by the spam filter. I say yeah to more database posts (although I am biased). I included a bunch of suggestions with website links, which is probably what triggered the filter. I'll try again with no links: Rat Genome Database (RGD), Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI), Zebrafish Information Network (Zfin), Flybase, Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR), the Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD), Mouse Phenome Database (MPD). You might also include OpenHelix which is a great resource for tips and tutorials (some free, some not).
