The UMLS integrates and distributes key terminology, classification and coding standards, and associated resources to promote creation of more effective and interoperable biomedical information systems and services, including electronic health records.
A nursing terminologies resource for systems development. Describes the role of SNOMED CT and Laboratory Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) in implementing Meaningful Use in the U.S., specifically for the nursing and care domain.
LinkOut is a service that allows you to link directly from PubMed and other NCBI databases to a wide range of information and services beyond the NCBI systems. LinkOut aims to facilitate access to relevant online resources in order to extend, clarify, and supplement information found in NCBI databases.
Third parties can link directly from PubMed and other Entrez database records to relevant Web-accessible resources beyond the Entrez system. Includes full-text publications, biological databases, consumer health information and research tools.
The Sequence Read Archive (SRA) stores sequencing data from the next generation of sequencing platforms including Roche 454 GS System®, Illumina Genome Analyzer®, Life Technologies AB SOLiD System®, Helicos Biosciences Heliscope®, Complete Genomics®, and Pacific Biosciences SMRT®.
Information about retroviruses and specialized tools for the analysis of retroviral proteins and genomes. The tools on this page aid in the identification, study and analysis of retroviral genomes and proteins. For instance, the HIV, human interaction database catalogs and organizes published data in peer-reviewed journals regarding HIV-1 and human protein interactions. Several links external to NCBI are also included for the purposes of education, research and health-related matters. These include links to the CDC, the Retroviruses textbook and other informative sites.
Accessed through the NCBI Bookshelf, the Help Manual contains documentation for many NCBI resources, including PubMed, PubMed Central, the Entrez system, Gene, SNP and LinkOut. All chapters can be downloaded in PDF format.
This site is for browsing WGS (Whole Genome Shotgun) genomes, TSA (Transcriptome Shotgun Assemblies) and TLS (Targeted Locus Study) sets. WGS sequences are incomplete genomes that have been sequenced by a whole genome shotgun strategy. TSA sequences are transcript sequences that have been computationally assembled from primary RNA sequence data. TLS sequences are large-scale marker gene sequencing studies.
SNOMED CT is one of a suite of designated standards for use in U.S. Federal Government systems for the electronic exchange of clinical health information and is also a required standard in interoperability specifications of the U.S. Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel.
Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS) projects are genome assemblies of incomplete genomes or incomplete chromosomes of prokaryotes or eukaryotes that are generally being sequenced by a whole genome shotgun strategy. WGS projects may be annotated, but annotation is not required. NCBI has a Prokaryotic Genomes Annotation Pipeline that may be requested at the time the genome files are submitted to GenBank. This pipeline generates a submission-ready annotated file that is posted back to the submitter for review and which the submitter could edit prior to data release.
