MethBank features integration and visualization of high-resolution DNA methylomes as well as gene expression profiles and genetic polymorphisms. Ongoing efforts are focused on incorporation of methylomes and related data from other organisms, providing an important resource for the epigenetic and developmental studies.

Virtual Chinese Genome Database

Virtual Chinese Genome Database is a dynamic genome database of Chinese population. VCGDB is a big data solution based on public data released by 1000 Genomes Project. The type of genomes we provide may not belong to any real existed human being, but the structured analyzing result of tera-bases of sequencing data from hundreds of Chinese individuals, thus enough capable of describing what characters and preference of genome a Chinese individual would most likely to have, that differ from those of other populations.

Science Wikis

ScienceWikis is a catalog of biological knowledge wikis and wiki extensions, aiming to exploit the full potential of wiki technology to harness community intelligence in knowledge integration and curation. Its purpose to build professional academic wikis for biological knowledge integration and curation, to provide a central archive of quantitative contributions and citations in different bio-wikis.

Wiki Cell

WikiCell presents a new model for EST databases that enhances and complements ongoing efforts. Each node of taxonomy at WikiCell has a dedicated wiki page, displaying dynamic pictures, description, references, system tree diagram, statistics and path. The “statistics” section provides the number of current node and next level owned EST. significantly, you can only enter summary page from the statistic section of leaf node page.

LncRNA Wiki

LncRNAWiki, is a wiki-based, publicly editable and open-content platform for community curation of human long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), viz., a community-curated resource of lncRNA knowledge. Unlike conventional biological databases based on expert curation, lncRNAWiki harnesses collective intelligence to collect, edit and annotate information about lncRNA, quantifies users' contributions in each annotated lncRNA and provides explicit authorship for each contributor to encourage more participation from the whole scientific community.

Rice Wiki

RiceWiki is a wiki-based, publicly editable and open-content platform for community curation of rice genes, viz., a community-curated resource of rice knowledge. Unlike conventional biological databases based on expert curation, RiceWiki harnesses collective intelligence to collect, edit and annotate information about rice, quantifies users' contributions in each annotated gene and provides explicit authorship for each contributor to encourage more participation from the whole scientific community.

ALZBIG Database

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease involving the alteration of gene expression at the whole genome level. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) offer important information for the better understanding of the disease mechanism. This platform provides information on DEGs related to the progression of AD. The information on DEGs are derived from independent studies with different microarray platforms.
