  • 1. Encyclopedia of Genetics, Genomics, Proteomics, and Informatics

    This encyclopedia covers the basics and the latest in genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering, small RNAs, transcription factories, chromosome territories, stem cells, genetic networks, epigenetics, prions, hereditary diseases, and patents. Similar integrated information is not available in textbooks or on the Internet. It is a resource for researchers, instructors and students of basic and applied biology, as well as for physicians and lawyers or even for interested laymen, because of the clarity of its presentation. This new third edition updates a best-selling encyclopedia. It includes about 60 more words than the 1,392-page second edition of 2003. The number of illustrations increased to almost 2,000 and their quality has improved by design and four colors. In addition, cross-references among entries are expanded and the statements are supported by references: more than 14,000 journal papers and more than 3,000 books are listed. The book includes approximately 1,800 cur rent databases and web servers. Retractions and corrigenda are pointed out. Target audience includes research workers in general genetics, genomics, proteomics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, evolution, cytogenetics, human genetics, ethics, natural philosophy; professors, teachers, librarians at universities, colleges and progressive secondary schools; physicians, law professionals; students at all levels of basic and applied biology; science administrators and journal editors, public libraries.

  • 2. WorldCat via FirstSearch

    WorldCat is a catalog of millions of books, serials, audiovisual media, maps, archives, manuscripts, scores, computer files, and web sites owned by OCLC member libraries around the world, including UW-Madison and the Library of Congress. More than 400 languages are represented. One of its many uses is the ability to make online interlibrary loan requests for books. There are two versions currently available. The FirstSearch interface has advanced search options, and lists results by number of copies available. It also may display more note information than the other interface. The WorldCat.org interface lists results in relevancy order. (Updated daily)

  • 3. WebCSD (Cambridge Structural Database - Chemistry)

    The CSD records bibliographic, chemical, and crystallographic information for organic molecules and metal-organic compounds whose 3D structures have been determined using X-ray diffraction and/or neutron diffraction. The CSD database records results of single crystal studies and/or powder diffraction studies which yield 3D atomic coordinate data for at least all non-H atoms. In some cases the CCDC is unable to obtain coordinates, and incomplete entries are archived to the CSD. The CSD includes crystal structure data arising from publications in the open literature including Private Communications to the CSD (via direct data deposition). The CSD does not store Polypeptides and polysaccharides having more than 24 units. These are recorded in the Protein Data Bank. Oligonucleotides are stored in the Nucleic Acids Data Bank. Inorganic structures are stored in the Inorganic Crystal Structure Database. Finally, the Metals and Alloys are stored in CRYSTMET. (Updated weekly)

  • 4. PILOTS (Traumatic Stress)

    The PILOTS bibliographic database, covering the Published International Literature On Traumatic Stress, is produced at the headquarters of the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in White River Junction, Vermont. The PILOTS database is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Its goal is to include citations to all literature on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental-health sequelae of traumatic events, without disciplinary, linguistic, or geographical limitations, and to offer both current and retrospective coverage.

  • 5. PubMed

    PubMed, developed by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), provides free access to MEDLINE, a database of more than 11 million bibliographic citations and abstracts from nearly 4,500 journals in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, allied health, health care systems, and pre-clinical sciences. PubMed also contains links to the full-text versions of articles at participating publishers' Web sites. In addition, PubMed provides access and links to the integrated molecular biology databases maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). These databases contain DNA and protein sequences, 3-D protein structure data, population study data sets, and assemblies of complete genomes in an integrated system. Additional NLM bibliographic databases, such as AIDSLINE, are being added to PubMed. PubMed includes "Old Medline." Old Medline covers 1950-1965. (Updated daily)

  • 6. SciFinder Web (Chemical Abstracts)

    Registration (Required). SciFinder Web requires an individual SciFinder username and password using an @wisc.edu email address. SciFinder is used to access information in selected Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) databases: CAPlus, CARegistry, CAREACTS, CHEMCATS, and CHEMLISTS, plus Medline (1946-present). It permits searching in a variety of ways: author name, research topic, substance identifier (CAS Registry Number, chemical name), chemical structure/substructure, or chemical reaction. See Databases and Full-Text Links for database contents.

  • 9. BLAST

    The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) finds regions of local similarity between sequences. The program compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases and calculates the statistical significance of matches. BLAST can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families. Entrez is the integrated, text-based search and retrieval system used at NCBI for the major databases, including PubMed, Nucleotide and Protein Sequences, Protein Structures, Complete Genomes, Taxonomy, and others.
