Biobar - A toolbar for browsing biological data and databases.

-

The biobar project is a bioinformatics - power-browsing toolbar for Mozilla-based browsers including Firefox and - Netscape 7+. This toolbar provides access to all major biological data - resources. The primary advantage of this tool is that it allows a - biologist to browse and retrieve data from Genomic, Proteomic, - Functional, Literature, Taxonomic, Structural, Plant and - Animal-specific databases. In addition to the browsing features, biobar - also provides links to important bioinformatics sites and services - including services at the European - Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), National Center for Biotechnology - Information (NCBI) and DNA - Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ). The tool also provides links to major - data deposition sites for nucleotide, protein and 3D-structure data. - Finally, the menu also contains links to many Sequence, Structure - alignment and analysis tools.

-

The latest release (Version 1.2.3) - of biobar provides browsing access to 34 - different biological databases (listed here). -
