    Full Name of the Resource : A collection of bioinformatic databases and software tools
    Resource Category : Databases -> Other Molecular Biology Databases -> Other Molecular Biology Databases

    Brief Description : To bridge the gap between the rising information needs of biological and medical researchers and the rapidly growing number of online bioinformatics resources, we have created the Online Bioinformatics Resources Collection (OBRC) at the Health Sciences Library System at the University of Pittsburgh. The OBRC, containing 1542 major online bioinformatics databases and software tools, was constructed using the HSLS content management system built on the Zope? Web application server. To enhance the output of search results, we further implemented the Viv??simo Clustering Engine?, which automatically organizes the search results into categories created dynamically based on the textual information of the retrieved records. As the largest online collection of its kind and the only one with advanced search results clustering, OBRC is aimed at becoming a one-stop guided information gateway to the major bioinformatics databases and software tools on the Web. OBRC is available at the University of Pittsburgh\'s Health Sciences Library System Web site: http://www.hsls.pitt.edu/guides/genetics/obrc.
