Databases in bioinformatics

8. Other relevant databases


GeneCards is a database of human genes, their products and their involvement in diseases. It offers concise information about the functions of all human genes that have an approved symbol, as well as selected others. It is a typical example of a secondary database, which contains many links to other databases, and attempts to consolidate the information that is available for a specific class of entity, in this case human genes.


GeneLynx is a database of Web links for human genes. It contains pointers to a large number of other databases. This is also a typical secondary database. It is maintained by Boris Lenhard and Wyeth Wasserman at CGB, KI, Sweden.


The Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) is an effort to computerize current knowledge of molecular and cellular biology in terms of the information pathways that consist of interacting molecules or genes and to provide links from the gene catalogs produced by genome sequencing projects.
