Example of Primary Databases
  • ENAGenBank and DDBJ (nucleotide sequence)
  • ArrayExpress and GEO (functional genomics data)
  • PDB(Protein Data Bank); coordinates of three-dimensional macromolecular structures)
Example of Secondary Databases
  • InterPro (protein families, motifs and domains)
  • UniProt Knowledgebase (sequence and functional information on proteins)
  • Ensembl (variation, function, regulation and more layered onto whole genome sequences)
Example of Bioinformatic Databases: Primary, Secondary, Microarray, Model organism, and Metabolic
Example of Microarray Databases

  • Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) from NCBI or ArrayExpress from EBI.
Example of Model organism Databases

  • dictyBase
  •  FlyBase
  •  Xenbase 
  • EcoCyc
Example of Metabolic Databases

  • MetaCyc is a highly curated metabolic database that contains metabolic pathways, enzymes, metabolites, and reactions from all domains of life 
  • KEGG (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes)
