RESOURCESRESOURCES

General Database

A plethora of useful links to databases, tools and resources for Arabidopsis and plant researchers.

ABRC, Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center

http://abrc.osu.edu/

Contains a catalogue of all seed stocks, a searchable germplasm database and searchable polymorphism database.

Addgene

http://www.addgene.org/

Addgene is a non-profit plasmid repository dedicated to helping academic scientists around the world share high-quality plasmids.

BAR, The Bio-Array Resource

http://www.bar.utoronto.ca/

A user friendly web based resource that contains a range of tools for functional genomics and data analysis. It contains t ools for querying data include Expression Browser; generates e-northerns, Expression Angler; fishes for genes with similar expression patterns, Promomer; identifies over represented words in a promoter or group of promoters and at to AGI converter; converts 25k Affy GeneChip IDs into AGI IDs and vice versa.

CiteAb

http://www.citeab.com/

CiteAb is the largest citation-ranked antibody search engine, regularly updated with new antibodies and citations. We list almost 1 million antibodies from 60 companies, along with publications that cite them.

You can submit your publications which use antibodies to add to the database and increase the impact and profile of your research. Users are also encouraged to submit original primary antibodies. 

EBI

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/

The European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) is a centre for research and services in bioinformatics.

EBI Service

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/services/services_tree.html

Comprehensive list of all tools and databases available at EBI

EBI Tool Box

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/

Range of bioinformatics tools for DNA and protein analysis

GABI

http://www.gabipd.org/

A range of tools for sequence analysis and manipulation. 

From the abstract: GabiPD constitutes a repository and analysis platform for a wide array of heterogeneous data arising from high-throughput experiments in several plant species. Currently, data from different ‘omics’ fronts are incorporated in GabiPD (i.e., genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics), originating from 14 different model or crop species. 

INRA, Versailles Genomic Resources Centre

http://www-ijpb.versailles.inra.fr/en/cra/cra_accueil.htm

55, 000 independent insertion mutants, more than 500 ecotype, nearly 30 Recombinant Inbred Line (RIL) populations with approximately 450 lines each and databases

Mutant genotype and phenotype dataset

http://www.plantphysiol.org/content/early/2012/01/13/pp.111.192393.short?rss=1

Lloyd and Meinke have made a dataset of 2400 genes with loss-of-function phenotypes in Arabidopsis. The complete dataset is found in Supplementary Table 2 of the Plant Physiology paper.

NASC, Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock Centre

http://arabidopsis.info/

Provides seed and information resources to the international Arabidopsis and wider research community. Data available includes catalogue of all seed stocks, a searchable germplasm database, a searchable collection of images of numerous Arabidopsis ecotypes and mutants, international Affymetrix service and a wealth of publically available microarray data.

Nowomics - Arabidopsis data and papers feed

http://nowomics.com/plant

Nowomics tracks new data in many online biological databases and identifies genes and key terms in new paper abstracts.

You follow the genes, proteins and processes that you work on. It's like Twitter for biological data.

Your news feed shows the latest information relevant to your research, with email alerts so you don't miss that all important paper.

Nowomics has a designated Arabidopsis feed for plant data and published papers. 

Nucleic Acid Research Databases list

http://www.oxfordjournals.org/nar/database/a/

Extensive list of over 1300 carefully selected databases covering various aspects of molecular and cell biology. The databases can be organised according to categories. The Plant Databases include Arabidopsis and other species.

RIKEN BRC, Bioresource

http://www.brc.riken.jp/lab/epd/Eng/species/arabidopsis.shtml

A collection of ecotypes and mutant Arabidopsis lines, as well as cDNA clones from a number of plant species.

TAIR Tools

http://www.arabidopsis.org/tools/

A very comprehensive Arabidopsis database containing a plethora of information including sequence, annotation, genes, markers, clones, proteins, microarrays, publications and people.

TAIR, The Arabidopsis Information Resource

http://www.arabidopsis.org/

The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) maintains a database of genetic and molecular biology data for the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Data available from TAIR includes the complete genome sequence along with gene structure, gene product information, metabolism, gene expression, DNA and seed stocks, genome maps, genetic and physical markers, publications, and information about the Arabidopsis research community.
