From Information to Insight

Biological databases contain an amazing amount of information that can be used to generate hypotheses and advance your research without even stepping in the lab. 

This page contains information about Databases and Analysis tools that facilitate data reuse. The analysis tools can also be used to analyze your own data.


The most comprehensive sets of molecular data can be found in data bases that participate in the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC).

  • National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)
  • European Nucleotide Archive (ENA)
  • DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ​)

Their search interfaces differ, but these organizations synchronize their data across these 3 databases, so which one you prefer is up to you.

​If you're looking for more specialized databases and tools, browse the categories below or use the Online Bioinformatics Resource Collection (OBRC).
