Genomining of Paris has upgraded its GetDB remote database download resource to provide access to the new UniProt database, which went live on Dec. 15. UniProt combines data from Swiss-Prot, TrEMBL, and the Protein Information Resource into a single resource (see PM 12-19-03).


Version 7.0 of the GenomeKnowledgeBase is available at http://www.genomeknowledge.org/. The latest version of the curated pathway resource includes 661 referenced human proteins organized into 62 different pathways.


Nucleic Acids Research has published its annual database issue, which includes papers describing 548 molecular biology and protein data resources. The issue is freely available, even for non-subscribers, at http://nar.oupjournals.org/content/vol32/suppl_1/.
