Bibliography of Genetic Variation in Natural Populations
"This bibliography of over 40,000 references has been accumulated over the last 25 years. The primary focus is the study of genetic variation in natural populations of animals, plants, and microbes. The secondary focus has been conservation, with an emphasis on the application of genetic principles to conservation. Nevertheless, this is a somewhat eclectic collection of titles that reflects my sometimes wandering interests and teaching responsibilities over the years (evolution, human genetics, etc.)...There is a taxonomic bias in this bibliography towards fish, especially salmon, trout, and their kin. There has been no effort to exclude papers dealing with the genetics and conservation of other taxa, but there has been an effort to include more papers on the general biology and natural history of salmonid fishes."
By Fred Allendorf, Division of Biological Sciences, University of Montana

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)."
