Clinical Practice Guidelines for Rare Diseases: The Orphanet Database.
Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for rare diseases (RDs) are scarce, may be difficult to identify through Internet searches and may vary in quality depending on the source and methodology used. In order to contribute to the improvement of the diag

MeioBase: a comprehensive database for meiosis.
Meiosis is a special type of cell division process necessary for the sexual reproduction of all eukaryotes. The ever expanding meiosis research calls for an effective and specialized database that is not readily available yet. To fill this gap, we ha

Development of a Comprehensive Database System for Safety Analyst.
This study addressed barriers associated with the use of Safety Analyst, a state-of-the-art tool that has been developed to assist during the entire Traffic Safety Management process but that is not widely used due to a number of challenges as descri

mUbiSiDa: a comprehensive database for protein ubiquitination sites in mammals.
Protein ubiquitination is one of the important post-translational modifications by attaching ubiquitin to specific lysine (K) residues in target proteins, and plays important regulatory roles in many cell processes. Recent studies indicated that abno

Global catalogue of microorganisms (gcm): a comprehensive database and information retrieval, analysis, and visualization system for microbial resources.
Throughout the long history of industrial and academic research, many microbes have been isolated, characterized and preserved (whenever possible) in culture collections. With the steady accumulation in observational data of biodiversity as well as m

GLASS: a comprehensive database for experimentally validated GPCR-ligand associations.
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are probably the most attractive drug target membrane proteins, which constitute nearly half of drug targets in the contemporary drug discovery industry. While the majority of drug discovery studies employ existing

ClonorESTdb: a comprehensive database for Clonorchis sinensis EST sequences.
Clonorchiasis, which is primarily caused by liver fluke (Platyhelminthes), is a fatal infectious disease that is mainly associated with bile duct malignancy and the subsequent development of cholangiocarcinoma. Thus, a genomic approach now represents

A comprehensive and scalable database search system for metaproteomics.
Mass spectrometry-based shotgun proteomics experiments rely on accurate matching of experimental spectra against a database of protein sequences. Existing computational analysis methods are limited in the size of their sequence databases, which sever

4DGenome: a comprehensive database of chromatin interactions.
The 3D structure of the genome plays a critical role in regulating gene expression. Recent progress in mapping technologies for chromatin interactions has led to a rapid increase in this kind of interaction data. This trend will continue as research

Anemia: a comprehensive global estimate.
In this issue of Blood, Kassebaum et al estimate that the global anemia prevalence in 2010 was 32.9%, resulting in 68.4 million years lived with disability (YLD). The results emphasize the important contribution made by anemia to the overall global b
