Online Bioinformatics Resource Collection (OBRC)

The OBRC contains annotations and links for 2696 bioinformatics databases and software tools. It is created in by the Molecular Biology Information Service for the Health Sciences Library System at the University of Pittsburgh. This freely available, searchable database arranges resources by categories and sub-categories such as Structure Databases and Analysis Tools, Proteomics Resources, and Enzymes and Pathways.

Nucleic Acids Research Bioinformatics Links Directory

The Bioinformatics Links Directory features curated links to molecular resources, tools, and databases culled from the annual Database issue and Web Server issue of the journal Nucleic Acids Research (NAR). NAR is a highly ranked open access journal that publishes articles on the biological, biochemical, physical, and chemical aspects of proteins and nucleic acids involved in nucleic acid interactions and/or metabolism. The freely available Bioinformatics Link Directory provides links to the resources themselves, as well as to the NAR published articles about those resources.

BIRI (Bioinformatics Resource Inventory)

The BioInformatics Resource Inventory (B.I.R.I.) is a public online searchable index of bioinformatics resources developed at the Biomedical Informatics Group. Information describing the resources has been automatically extracted from the literature and indexed using Natural Language and Text Mining techniques. The index is automatically updated by analyzing new papers describing existing resources (databases, tools, services...)

ExPASy Life Science Directory

"The ExPASy (Expert Protein Analysis System) server of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) consists of links in various life science fields. (Source: vendor website)"


The EMBL-EBI website contains links to databases, tools and various bioinformatics related resources available on the internet. This list is by no means exhaustive, but does cover a large bulk of the bioinformatics material and subject matters.


A great site from UCSF that has several unique and useful catagories.

Other interesting sources:

OReFiL is the Online Resource Finder for Lifesciences. Developed by computational biologists, it provides searches for online resources introduced in peer-reviewed papers in the life sciences. A crawler automatically extracts all URLs listed in MEDLINE abstracts and full-text papers from BioMed Central open-access journals and maintains them in a freely available, searchable database.

The BioMed Central Databases maintain a catalog of Web-based databases as well as a Biology Image Library. The collection can be browsed by subject area or searched by name, description, contents, and/or subject area. The scientific community is welcome to create a database or simply house it on the BioMed Central Databases site.

The BioCatalougue is a registry of biological Web Services. The BioCatalogue website is freely accessible to the world as it is searchable and indexable to search engines. It provides an open platform for biological Web Services registration, annotation and monitoring. The BioCatalogue currently has 1696 services, 126 service providers and 402 members.

The G6G Directory of Omics and Intelligent Software lists data mining and additional software that is from biotechnology and artificial intelligence. Currently contains over 280 different advanced Software product abstracts (Not just links)

The NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) has a large number of interlinked specialty databases useful to molecular biologists, geneticists, and others researching genetic and protein sequences. The "How To" section of the NCBI site provides strategies for obtaining specific data from the system.

The BTR (Bioinformatics Training Resource) is an organized collection of links to online tutorials, online courses, essays, book chapters, course syllabi, glossaries, bibiliographies of key papers, etc. In short everything that interested scientists need in order to train themselved in the emerging discipline of bioinformatics.

CAMERA stands for Community Cyberinfrastructure for Advanced Microbial Ecology Research and Analysis. The aim of this project is to serve the needs of the microbial ecology research community by creating a rich, distinctive data repository and a bioinformatics tools resource that will address many of the unique challenges of metagenomic analysis.

Health Informatics Web Portals: This page contains links to Health Informatics portals and general links pages.

NBIC (The Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre) is a collaborative institute of the bioinformatics groups in the Netherlands. Together, these groups perform cutting-edge research, develop novel tools and support platforms, create an e-science infrastructure and educate the next generations of bioinformaticians. GForge is the repository for Dutch Bioinformatics.
