Aspergillus Genome Database (AspGD)
  • Description — The Aspergillus Genome Database (AspGD) is an online genomics resource for researchers studying the genetics and molecular biology of the Aspergilli. AspGD combines high-quality manual curation of the experimental scientific literature examining the genetics and molecular biology of Aspergilli, cutting-edge comparative genomics approaches to iteratively refine and improve structural gene annotations across multiple Aspergillus species, and web-based research tools for accessing and exploring the data.

The Pharmacogenomics Knowledgebase (PharmaGKB)
  • Description — PharmGKB collects, encodes, and disseminates knowledge about the impact of human genetic variations on drug response. We curate primary genotype and phenotype data, annotate gene variants and gene-drug-disease relationships via literature review, and summarize important PGx genes and drug pathways.

    The knowledge base offers information as a research tool and will:
    • Collect and disseminate knowledge about the impact of human genetic variation on drug responses
    • Curate and display primary genotype and phenotype data
    • Annotate gene variants and gene-drug-disease relationships via literature reviews
    • Summarize important pharmacogenomic genes and drug pathways
    • Enable consortia examining important questions in pharmacogenomics

Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD)
  • Description — SGD is an organized collection of genetic and molecular biological information about Saccharomyces cerevisiae, bakers' and brewers' yeast. It contains the sequences of yeast genes and proteins; descriptions and classifications of their biological roles, molecular functions, and subcellular localizations; links to literature information; links to functional genomics datasets; and tools for analysis and comparison of sequences.
