GenBank


Publisher: National Library of Medicine

NCBI houses GenBank, the international depository of publicly available DNA sequences. Subsets of GenBank, including databases such as Nucleotide, CoreNucleotide and Protein, can be searched by keyword or sequence. Keyword queries search sequence annotations (including the GenBank accession numbers researchers are required to include in scientific papers), while the BLAST search algorithms allow searchers to use sequence data as a query to retrieve sequences of significant similarity. --Review by Tina O'Grady, C&RL News, July/August 2008
