This site celebrates twentieth-century leaders in biomedical research and public health. It makes the archival collections of prominent scientists, physicians, and others who have advanced the scientific enterprise available to the public through modern digital technology.
The Taxonomy Database is a curated classification and nomenclature for all of the organisms in the public sequence databases. This currently represents about 10% of the described species of life on the planet.
RxNav-in-a-Box provides users with a locally-installable RxNav (https://rxnav.nlm.nih.gov/RxNavDoc.html) and RESTful companion APIs, including RxNorm, RxTerms, RxClass, RxCUI history, and drug-drug interactions.
Open-i service provides search and retrieval of abstracts and images (including charts, graphs, clinical images, etc.) from the open source literature, and biomedical image collections. Searching may be done by text queries as well as by query images.
RxTerms is a drug interface terminology derived from RxNorm for prescription writing or medication history recording (e.g. in e-prescribing systems, PHRs). RxTerms is derived only from the non-proprietary content of RxNorm, which is developed and maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. No fee or license is required to use the RxTerms data.

dbSNP contains human single nucleotide variations, microsatellites, and small-scale insertions and deletions along with publication, population frequency, molecular consequence, and genomic and RefSeq mapping information for both common variations and clinical mutations. dbSNP tutorials can be found at https://github.com/ncbi/dbsnp/tree/master/tutorials
This genetic variation services interconvert and transform short genetic variants between HGVS expressions, VCF format, and the new SPDI (Sequence Position Deletion Insertion) format, based on alignment datasets used by ClinVar and dbSNP. NOTE: This service is still in beta testing mode
