Most Used Molecular Biology of the Genome Resources
PubMed comprises more than 27 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites. Use this URL to have your PubMed results linked to LMU's full text journals.
Web of Science consists of three citation databases containing information gathered from thousands of scholarly journals, books, book series, reports, conferences, and more. These databases contain the references cited by the authors of the articles. You can use these references to do cited reference searching. (This type of search allows you to find articles that cite a previously published work.) Web of Science includes Social Sciences Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, and Arts & Humanities Citation Index.
The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) is the community resource for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The SGD project provides encyclopedic information about the yeast genome and its genes, proteins, and other encoded features.
