The Protein database is a collection of sequences from several sources, including translations from annotated coding regions in GenBank, RefSeq and TPA, as well as records from SwissProt, PIR, PRF, and PDB. Protein sequences are the fundamental determinants of biological structure and function.
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.
TSA is an archive of computationally assembled transcript sequences from primary data such as ESTs and Next Generation Sequencing Technologies. The overlapping sequence reads from a complete transcriptome are assembled into transcripts by computational methods instead of by traditional cloning and sequencing of cloned cDNAs. The primary sequence data used in the assemblies must have been experimentally determined by the same submitter. TSA sequence records differ from GenBank records because there are no physical counterparts to the assemblies.
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®.
