The BioProject database provides an organizational framework to access information about research projects with links to data that have been or will be deposited into archival databases maintained at members of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Consortium (INSDC, which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Nucleotide Archive at European Molecular Biology Laboratory (ENA), and GenBank at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)).
The Consensus CDS (CCDS) project is a collaborative effort to identify a core set of human and mouse protein coding regions that are consistently annotated and of high quality. The long term goal is to support convergence towards a standard set of gene annotations.
Available information includes: Announcements, Overview, Access and Availability, Collaborators, CCDS Identifiers and Tracking, Process Flow and Quality Testing, Publications.
Initial results from the Consensus CDS project are now available from the participants' genome browser Web sites. In addition, CCDS identifiers are indicated on the relevant NCBI RefSeq and Entrez Gene records. CCDS reports can be accessed by following provided links, or by directly querying the underlying database using the query interface provided at the top of the home page. The CCDS dataset is also available for anonymous FTP.
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
Gene integrates information from a wide range of species. A record may include nomenclature, Reference Sequences (RefSeqs), maps, pathways, variations, phenotypes, and links to genome-, phenotype-, and locus-specific resources worldwide.
GEO is a public functional genomics data repository supporting MIAME-compliant data submissions. There are also tools provided to help users query and download experiments and curated gene expression profiles.
