abstract

  • Every year new databases and tools for the storage and analysis of biological data are developed, updated, and discontinued. For this reason it is very important to have a clear picture of the major repositories providing information about the availability of these databases and tools as well as a brief description of them. This chapter provides an overview of the most important information sources which can guide researchers through the process of selecting databases and tools of interest for immunoinformatics and systems biology in personalized medicine. As an example of a particular resource of interest that combines a curated database and tools for data analysis, this chapter also includes a description of InnateDB. This database offers access to curated information relative to the innate immune response in a systems biology context.
