The Database of Aquatic, Wetland and Invasive Plants
"The database includes annotated citations for more than 60,000 research articles, books and reports about plant ecology, physiology, utilization and control. Items in many languages dating back to the 18th century are in this inclusive database."

Biomedical Acronym Database
"This database was constructed in a purely automated manner, using a set of heuristics to identify acronyms/abbreviations and their definitions within MEDLINE records. Currently, it is the world's largest and most comprehensive catalog of biomedical acronyms and abbreviations, containing approximately 257,000 out of an estimated 277,000 unique acronyms within MEDLINE."

The Comprehensive Microbial Resource Home Page
"These pages have been designed to allow the user to access data from all of the genome sequences completed to date. Accessible here is the Omniome database which contains the sequence and annotation of each of the completed genomes as well as associated information about the organisms (such as taxon and gram stain pattern), the structure and composition of their DNA molecules (such as plasmid vs. chromosome and GC content), and many attributes of the protein sequences predicted from the DNA sequence (such as pI and molecular weight)."
"Our goal was to completely sequence the E. coli K-12 genome and several of the E. coli phages using a high-throughput method that is both accurate and rapid. We have achieved that goal and are in the process of analyzing the data acquired."

The eSkeletons Project
"The e-Skeletons Project website enables you to view the bones of a human, chimpanzee, and baboon and gather information about them from our osteology database...This site provides an interactive environment in which to examine and learn about skeletal anatomy. This includes: high-quality images of bones - labels of all muscles, articulations, and morphological features - high-resolution 3-D renderings of the skeletal elements in both animation (Quicktime) and interactive virtual reality (VRML) format."
Created at the University of Texas at Austin
"A collaborative effort of the laboratories of Dr. Judith Brown (University of Arizona) and Dr. Stephen D. Wyatt (Washington State University), this Website serves as a hub of information on whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses in the genus _Begomoviridae_. Resources provided at the site include _Begomovirus_ descriptive information (general information; worldwide distribution; a hyperlinked list of Begomovirus; and a searchable database of begomovirus isolates by geographic location, virus/ isolate name, symptom, and host) and Core Coat Protein Sequence Database (including PCR sequence technical information and Mini-Blast search). In addition to text, several small color images provide illustrations of the effect (symptoms) of geminivirus-related disease on hosts. [LXP]"

Index to Plant Chromosome Numbers (IPCN)
"...aims to extract and index original plant chromosome numbers of naturally occurring and cultivated plants published throughout the world. A committee of voluntary contributing editors, located in various parts of the world, reviews sets of serial titles assigned to them and returns the information to the editors for collation in the Index."
Missouri Botanical Garden
INVADERS Database System
"...is a comprehensive database of exotic plant names and weed distribution records for five states in the northwestern United States. The spatial and temporal spread of weeds can be displayed using the historic distribution records in INVADERS. The INVADERS web site contains actual examples of how land management and weed regulatory agencies are using these data to improve their weed management programs. Noxious weed listings are provided for all US states and six southern tier Canadian provinces."

International Legume Database & Information Service (ILDIS)
"...to provide a service to legume specialists and users of legumes and legume products worldwide. The service includes products obtained from a database of all the species. ILDIS is a collaborative organisation involving experts and institutions all over the world
National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII)
"...The NBII links diverse, high-quality biological databases, information products, and analytical tools maintained by NBII partners and other contributors in government agencies, academic institutions, non-government organizations, and private industry."
NLM Gateway Search
"The NLM Gateway allows users to search in multiple retrieval systems at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM). The current Gateway searches MEDLINE/PubMed, OLDMEDLINE, LOCATORplus, AIDS Meetings, Health Services Research Meetings, HSRProj, MEDLINEplus and DIRLINE."
