Human Metabolome Database

About the Human Metabolome Database
Welcome to HMDB Version 4.0

The Human Metabolome Database (HMDB) is a freely available electronic database containing detailed information about small molecule metabolites found in the human body. It is intended to be used for applications in metabolomics, clinical chemistry, biomarker discovery and general education. The database is designed to contain or link three kinds of data: 1) chemical data, 2) clinical data, and 3) molecular biology/biochemistry data. The database contains 114,222 metabolite entries including both water-soluble and lipid soluble metabolites as well as metabolites that would be regarded as either abundant (> 1 uM) or relatively rare (< 1 nM). Additionally, 5,702 protein sequences are linked to these metabolite entries. Each MetaboCard entry contains 130 data fields with 2/3 of the information being devoted to chemical/clinical data and the other 1/3 devoted to enzymatic or biochemical data. (more…)

Database: The Journal of Biological Databases and Curation

About The Journal

Huge volumes of primary data are currently archived in numerous open-access databases, and with new generation technologies becoming more common in laboratories, large datasets will become even more prevalent than today. The lasting archiving, accurate curation, efficient analysis and precise interpretation of all of these data are a challenge. Collectively, database development and biocuration are at the forefront of the endeavor to make sense of this mounting deluge of data.

Database: The Journal of Biological Databases and Curation provides an open access platform for the presentation of novel ideas in database research surrounding biological information, and aims to help strengthen the bridge between database developers, curators, and users. In addition, the journal will provide a platform for the description of novel advances in the field of biocuration and promote the use of information from biological databases to assist in the planning and design of original research projects.

Biological Magnetic Resonance Data Bank

Introduction

BioMagResBank (BMRB) is the publicly-accessible depository for NMR results from peptides, proteins, and nucleic acids recognized by the International Society of Magnetic Resonance and by the IUPAC-IUBMB-IUPAB Inter-Union Task Group on the Standardization of Data Bases of Protein and Nucleic Acid Structures Determined by NMR Spectroscopy. In addition, BMRB provides reference information and maintains a collection of NMR pulse sequences and computer software for biomolecular NMR. Access to data in BMRB is free directly from its web site (URL http://www.bmrb.wisc.edu) and ftp site (ftp.bmrb.wisc.edu) and will remain so as public funding permits. The concept of a biomolecular NMR data bank was developed under a five-year research grant awarded to the University of Wisconsin-Madison from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. BMRB at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been supported since 1 September 1996 by the National Library of Medicine. (more…)

RIKEN : Chemical Biology Research Group

To promote “Chemical Biological Research” that aims to elucidate biological phenomena using chemical compounds as starting materials, chemical libraries and databases that describe the chemical and biological information of the libraries must be appropriately maintained.
Our group will construct chemical libraries and databases through the genetic and organic chemical researches of secondary metabolites from actinomycetes and fungi.
We will also promote basic research to validate the usefulness of the chemical library, to identify the molecular target of the active compound, and to elucidate the mechanism behind the action of the active compounds in the libraries.
We will continue to maintain infrastructure for chemical biological studies.

NPASS

About NPASS

Modern drug discovery and today’s pharmacopeia is largely benefited from nature. More than 50% of approved drugs are natural products or natural product derivatives. It is estimated that there are about a million natural products have been isolated and many of them have been subjected to experimental assays to evaluate quantitative biological activities. However, there is a lack of an integrated datahouse to assemble these valuable data from individual literatures and provide to research community. With the motivation of addressing this gap, the Natural Product Activity and Species Source Database (NPASS) is developed to provide a freely accessible database integrating detailed information of species sources and biological activities of natural products.

Philippine Alternative Medicine

A study of alternative medicine in the Philippines is, inevitably, a study of the origins of its people and the amalgam of cultures and influences: Centuries of Spanish colonial rule and the indelible consequences of its religion, hundreds of years of trade with China and assimilation of its healing arts, tribal and provincial diversities with its profusion of folklore and mythologies, all redounding into the Filipino’s easy disposition for superstitions and the allure for the esoteric, mystical, and fringe.

Certainly, western medicine prevails – in the metropolitan areas, with its heart centers and hospitals plush with the accoutrements of modern medicine, in the provincial capitals and cities equipped with the diagnostic machineries essential for the commerce of mainstream medicine. But for the majority of the rural poor – including the urban-suburban poor – there are the chronic crippling economic disabilities that make mainstream health care unaffordable, often accessed only as a debt-inducing last resort.

Korean Traditional Knowledge Portal (KTKP)

Since 2001 the Intergovernmental Committee of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has been discussed on world protection of the traditional knowledge of each country. At the seventh session of the Meeting of International Authorities under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) in February 2003, it was agreed that traditional knowledge should be included in the “Non-patent literature” part of the PCT minimum documentation according to criteria.

In line with the international protection movement, the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) decided to formulate information strategy planning for the building of a database of traditional knowledge in 2004. The database, which was compiled from 2005 to 2007, was based on traditional Korean medicine. A search service of the database commenced in December 2007. (more…)

Annies Remedy – Herbs For Self Healing

Annies Remedy A-Z Medicinal Herb Chartcontains information on hundreds of traditional medicinal herbs and plants, yet it is still only a tiny fraction of the natural plants used for healing worldwide. The focus is for the most part on Western herbs though there is a sampling on the most popular herbs from the herbal traditions of China and Ayurveda as well as other cultures. The herb profiles include photographs, descriptions, medicinal uses, folklore, and references from the leading herbalists of today and ancient times. You can browse alphabetically by common names, to find information on a popular herb like ginger, or find it listed by its botanical nameZingiber officinale.
