The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), as a primary public repository of genomic sequence data, collects and maintains enormous amounts of heterogeneous data. Data for genomes, genes, gene expressions, gene variation, gene families, proteins, and protein domains are integrated with the analytical, search, and retrieval resources through the NCBI Web site. Entrez, a text-based search and retrieval system, provides a fast and easy way to navigate across diverse biological databases.
Customized genomic BLAST enables sequence similarity searches against a special collection of organism-specific sequence data and viewing the resulting alignments within a genomic context using NCBI’s genome browser, Map Viewer.
Comparative genome analysis tools lead to further understanding of evolutionary processes, quickening the pace of discovery.
