Ribosomal Database Project: data and tools for high throughput rRNA analysis.

Nucleic acids research | Jan 30, 2014

Ribosomal Database Project (RDP; http://rdp.cme.msu.edu/) provides the research community with aligned and annotated rRNA gene sequence data, along with tools to allow researchers to analyze their own rRNA gene sequences in the RDP framework. RDP data and tools are utilized in fields as diverse as human health, microbial ecology, environmental microbiology, nucleic acid chemistry, taxonomy and phylogenetics. In addition to aligned and annotated collections of bacterial and archaeal small subunit rRNA genes, RDP now includes a collection of fungal large subunit rRNA genes. RDP tools, including Classifier and Aligner, have been updated to work with this new fungal collection. The use of high-throughput sequencing to characterize environmental microbial populations has exploded in the past several years, and as sequence technologies have improved, the sizes of environmental datasets have increased. With release 11, RDP is providing an expanded set of tools to facilitate analysis of high-throughput data, including both single-stranded and paired-end reads. In addition, most tools are now available as open source packages for download and local use by researchers with high-volume needs or who would like to develop custom analysis pipelines.

German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures

The DSMZ - Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen und Zellkulturen GmbH (German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures) is the most comprehensive biological resource center in Europe. With more than 18.000 microorganisms, 1.200 plant viruses, 600 human and animal cell lines, 770 plant cell cultures and more than 7.100 cultures deposited for the purposes of patenting, DSMZ has demonstrated their obligation to serve science for decades. Main functions of DSMZ are: - to collect, maintain and store microorganisms and cell lines, as well as other biological material of relevance for applied biology, biotechnology, microbiology, teaching and other areas of research and general application; - to keep the scientific and industrial community informed on the contents of the collections by the means of catalogs, special lists, databases or electronic media; - to supply scientists and institutions with DSMZ cultures, in accordance with national and international laws such as the Infektionsschutzgesetz (Act dealing with protection against infection), the Genetic Engineering Act, the Foreign Trade Laws, the Convention on Biological Diversity as well as the DSMZ terms of supply; - to function as an internationally recognized collection center for the deposit of microorganisms, cell lines, and other biological material which have been cited in scientific literature or which are used in national or international test procedures (e.g. type strains, reference strains for national and international quality control regulations or susceptibility tests, strains with special properties, such as the production of enzymes, degradation of pollutants, host strains for plasmids, etc.); - to act as an International Depositary Authority (IDA) for the deposit of biological material for patent purposes according to the Budapest Treaty; - to act, in a confidential manner, as a center for the safe deposit of biological material; - to act as an advisory center for the scientific community and to offer teaching and service facilities. The DSMZ collections contain over 26 000 cultures (including 6500 patent deposits) representing more than 16 000 cultures of microorganisms (Archaea, Bacteria, plasmids, phages, yeasts, fungi), 750 plant cell cultures, 600 plant viruses, 700 antisera and 580 human and animal cell lines. Unique subcollections are held in the prokaryotes groups of acidophiles, alkaliphiles, halophiles, methanogens, phototrophs, thermophiles, and sulfate reducers. The research is focused on collection related fields which include: - Taxonomy - Evolution - Phylogeny - Microbial diversity and molecular assessment of diversity - Molecular systematics - Research on pathobiological aspects of leukemia-lymphoma cell lines applying classical and molecular genetics, immunological and cell biological methods * Development of cultivation and preservation methods for biological material * Characterization and identification of biological material

European Nucleotide Archive

Public archive providing a comprehensive record of the world''''s nucleotide sequencing information, covering raw sequencing data, sequence assembly information and functional annotation. All submitted data, once public, will be exchanged with the NCBI and DDBJ as part of the INSDC data exchange agreement. The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) captures and presents information relating to experimental workflows that are based around nucleotide sequencing. A typical workflow includes the isolation and preparation of material for sequencing, a run of a sequencing machine in which sequencing data are produced and a subsequent bioinformatic analysis pipeline. ENA records this information in a data model that covers input information (sample, experimental setup, machine configuration), output machine data (sequence traces, reads and quality scores) and interpreted information (assembly, mapping, functional annotation). Data arrive at ENA from a variety of sources including submissions of raw data, assembled sequences and annotation from small-scale sequencing efforts, data provision from the major European sequencing centers and routine and comprehensive exchange with their partners in the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC). Provision of nucleotide sequence data to ENA or its INSDC partners has become a central and mandatory step in the dissemination of research findings to the scientific community. ENA works with publishers of scientific literature and funding bodies to ensure compliance with these principles and to provide optimal submission systems and data access tools that work seamlessly with the published literature. ENA is made up of a number of distinct databases that includes the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database (Embl-Bank), the newly established Sequence Read Archive (SRA) and the Trace Archive. The main tool for downloading ENA data is the ENA Browser, which is available through REST URLs for easy programmatic use. All ENA data are available through the ENA Browser. Note: EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database (EMBL-Bank) is entirely included within this resource.
