Human Genome Center have constructed and provided various kinds of biological databases. In addition some major databases which are constructed by other institutes can also be searched through entry retrieval system developed in HGC.
Followings are available.
The Cell System Markup Language (CSML) is an XML format for modeling, visualizing and simulating biopathways. CSML supports to represent several pathway types including metabolic, signaling, and genetic regulatory pathways. This project aims to facilitate the exchange of biopathway data in different formats. Effort has been made for data conversion from other XML formats. In addition, to allow extensible and flexible features of CSML, the Cell System Ontology (CSO) has been developed.
Full-malaria is the database of full-length cDNAs of parasites. 5'-end-one-pass sequences of the cDNA libraries produced from the erythrocytic malaria parasites and the tachyzoites of toxoplasma parasites are mapped onto the genome sequences. It also contains 5'-end-one-pass sequences of the cyst of Echinococcus multilocularis.
MBGD is a database for comparative analysis of completely sequenced microbial genomes, the number of which is now growing rapidly. The aim of MBGD is to facilitate comparative genomics from various points of view such as ortholog identification, paralog clustering, motif analysis and gene order comparison. MBGD is now maintained at National Institute for Basic Biology.
