Beyond Discovery
The Path from Research to Human Benefit
" a series of articles that trace the origins of important recent technological and medical advances. Each story reveals the crucial role played by basic science, the applications of which could not have been anticipated at the time the original research was conducted."
Subjects include: Agriculture ; Biology ; Chemistry ; Earth Sciences ; Environmental Issues ; Health ; Mathematics ; Physics ; Technology.

" the only national magazine that continually monitors the ethical, social and ecological impacts of human and agricultural biotechnology...Selected articles and all of our book reviews from these issues are available online."

  • Entrez Popset
    "A PopSet is a set of DNA sequences that have been collected to analyse the evolutionary relatedness of a population. The population could originate from different members of the same species, or from organisms from different species."
  • Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO)
    "GEO is our effort to build a gene expression data repository and online resource for the retrieval of gene expression data from any organism or artificial source."
  • Malaria Genetics & Genomics (MGG)
    "...provides data and information relevant to malaria genetics and genomics. These resources include organism specific sequence BLAST databases (Plasmodium falciparum only, all Plasmodium), genome maps, linkage markers, and information about genetic studies. Links are provided for other malaria web sites and genetic data on related apicomplexan parasites."
  • Reference Sequence (RefSeq)
    "The Reference Sequence (RefSeq) collection aims to provide a comprehensive, integrated, non-redundant set of sequences, including genomic DNA, transcript (RNA), and protein products, for major research organisms...RefSeq standards serve as the basis for medical, functional, and diversity studies; they provide a stable reference for gene identification and characterization, mutation analysis, expression studies, polymorphism discovery, and comparative analyses. RefSeqs are used as a reagent for the functional annotation of some genome sequencing projects, including those of human and mouse."

Science - Functional Genomics
" 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."
