Science Magazine - Special Online Collection: The SARS Epidemic
"The molecular biology of the coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) comes into clearer focus this week, with the online publication, on Science Express, of two papers that provide initial analysis and characterization of the SARS virus genome. Science is making these important papers, along with an accompanying editorial, free to all visitors."[All additional SARS resources available on a "pay-per-article" basis.]

BioCyc Knowledge Library
"...is a collection of Pathway/Genome Databases. Each database in the BioCyc collection describes the genome and metabolic pathways of a single organism, with the exception of the MetaCyc database, which is a reference source on metabolic pathways from many organisms...The BioCyc databases are electronic reference sources for biologists who work with various microorganisms. Currently, detailed organism-specific information is available for 13 species. In addition, the MetaCyc metabolic pathway database contains data from 150 species."

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)."

DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI)
Operated by The University of California for The US Department of Energy

Dolan DNA Learning Center - Genes in Education
"The mission of the Dolan DNA Learning Center is to prepare students and families to thrive in the gene age. We envision a day when all elementary students are exposed to principles of genetics and disease risk; when all high school students have the opportunity to do hands-on experiments with DNA; and when all families have access to genetic information they need to make informed health care choices."
- Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Genome Research
"The journal focuses on genome studies in all species, and presents research that provides or aids in genome-based analyses of biological processes. The journal represents a nexus point where genomic information, applications, and technology come together with biological information to create a more global understanding of all biological systems. "
Occasionally special issues are available with free online content.


__________

Science Functional Genomics
"...is designed to serve as a convenient entry point to the rich world of genomics and, especially, post-genomics. It includes current news, a news archive, drawn mainly from Science and ScienceNOW, a collection of research papers and news broken into various categories of interest in the post-genomic world, a page gathering together Science's genome special issues, pointers to a wide variety of Web resources in genomics and post-genomics, and a special node of news and information on the biotechnology business."

UCSC Genome Bioinformatics
"This site contains working drafts for the human, mouse, and rat genomes...The Genome Browser and the data it displays are freely available for academic, nonprofit, and personal use with a few exceptions."
- University of California, Santa Cruz
