  1. PlasmoDB (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Plasmodium genome database
    Resource Category : Databases -> Genomic Databases (Non-Human) -> Unicellular Eukaryotes Genome Databases

    Brief Description : PlasmoDB (http://PlasmoDB.org) is the official database of the Plasmodium falciparum genome sequencing consortium. This resource incorporates finished and draft genome sequence data and annotation emerging from Plasmodium sequencing projects. PlasmoDB currently houses information from five parasite species, and provides tools for cross-species comparisons. Sequence information is also integrated with other genomic-scale data emerging from the Plasmodium research community, including gene expression analysis from EST, SAGE, and microarray projects. The relational schemas used to build PlasmoDB (GUS = Genomics Unified Schema and RAD = RNA Abundance Database) employ a highly structured format to accommodate the diverse data types generated by sequence and expression projects. A variety of tools allow researchers to formulate complex, biologically-based, queries of the database. A version of the database is also available via CD-ROM (Plasmodium GenePlot), facilitating access to the data in situations where internet access is difficult (e.g. by malaria researchers working in the field). The goal of PlasmoDB is to facilitate utilization of the vast quantities of data emerging from genome-scale projects by the global malaria research community.
