Data Depositories for Life & Biological Sciences

  • AceView - Provides a curated, comprehensive and non-redundant sequence representation of all public mRNA sequences (mRNAs from GenBank or RefSeq, and single pass cDNA sequences from dbEST and Trace).
  • The Climate Center - The Data Basin Climate Center centralizes critical climate change datasets.
  • Dryad - An international repository of data underlying peer-reviewed articles in the basic and applied biosciences.
  • European Bioinformatics Institute - The main missions of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) centre on building, maintaining and providing biological databases and information services to support data deposition and exploitation.
  • Global Biodiversity Information Facility - Enables free and open access to biodiversity data online. We’re an international government-initiated and funded initiative focused on making biodiversity data available to all and anyone, for scientific research, conservation and sustainable development. 
  • Melanoma Molecular Map Project - sharing scientific knowledge on melanoma to make the most of current research and speed up the discovery pace of novel therapeutic strategies.
  • National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program - Acquires, preserves and disseminates data relevant to drug addiction and HIV research.
  • NCBI Databases - National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information.
  • NeuroMorpho.Org is a centrally curated inventory of digitally reconstructed neurons associated with peer-reviewed publications
  • Paleobiology Database - Seeks to provide researchers and the public with information about the entire fossil record.
  • Protein Data bank - The PDB archive contains information about experimentally-determined structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies.
  • Sage Commons - Will be used to integrate diverse molecular mega-datasets, to build predictive bionetworks and to offer advanced tools proven to provide unique new insights into human disease biology.
  • UniProt - Free protein sequences
