Please find below resource(s) available for Trial
AgBase, BioCyc and Repbase are new TAL offerings by TAL. This is a joint TAL/COPPUL offering, TAL is the lead.
These are being offered through the same vendor as the TAIR offering late last year, Phoenix Bioinformatics. Since there were some interest in the other available products, TAL is offering them all. Repbase has been freely accessible but is moving over to a paid subscription model shortly. This will be available through TAL once it is available only as a paid subscription.
These are pretty specific resources so large uptake is not expected, however, with 2 or more subscribers between COPPUL and TAL, a 10% consortium discount is available.
This is initially being offered on a pro-rated basis, April 1 - October 31 to align with the TAIR subscription, also from Phoenix Bioinformatics.
AgBAse: AgBase specializes in agricultural and non-model organisms, providing tools to classify and organize a researcher’s genes of interest according to the standardized Gene Ontology (GO) classification system, even where no GO annotations previously exist.
BioCyc: The BioCyc web portal from SRI International contains genome and metabolic-pathway information for over 14,000 microbes. The BioCyc website provides a suite of software tools for database searching and visualization, for omics data analysis, and for comparative genomics and comparative pathway questions.
Provides a reference on the genomes and metabolic pathways of thousands of sequenced organisms. BioCyc PGDBs are generated by software that predicts the metabolic pathways of completely sequenced organisms, predicts which genes code for missing enzymes in metabolic pathways, and predicts operons. BioCyc also integrates information from other bioinformatics databases, such as protein feature and Gene Ontology information from UniProt. The BioCyc website provides a suite of software tools for database searching and visualization, for omics data analysis, and for comparative genomics and comparative pathway questions.
The curated information in BioCyc has been derived from 66,000 publications. Datasheet attached below with more detailed information.
Repbase: Repbase is a comprehensive collection of representative repeat sequences in eukaryotic genomes, and has been an essential genetic sequencing companion since 1992. Repbase is primarily used for Repeat Masking and Transposon Studies.
Late joins welcome.
If you wish to join any of these new subscription offerings, contact Christa Foley by Wednesday, March 20, 2019. A subscriber agreement will be sent out shortly.
Repbase will be available once the vendor makes it paid subscription content. Currently it is still available freely.
