  • American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS)

  • Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF)
  • FASEB-Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology  - The largest coalition of life sciences societies in the United States, and represents over 42,000 biomedical and biological scientists.

  • National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) - The NCBI is responsible for building, maintaining, and distributing GenBank, the NIH genetic sequence database that collects all known DNA sequences from scientists worldwide. The NCBI is a division of the National Library ofMedicine (NLM) and is located on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.

  • National Science Foundation World Wide Web Server - All NSF program announcements, publications, and program deadlines are available here. An NSF award database is also available.

  • Protein Data Bank (PDB) -  An archival computer database of three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. The database contains atomic coordinates, bibliographic citations, primary sequence and secondary structure information, as well as crystallographic structure factors and 2D-NMR experimental data. Information is available on protein, DNA, RNA, virus and carbohydrate structures.

  • The mission of UniProt is to provide the scientific community with a comprehensive, high-quality and freely accessible resource of protein sequence and functional information.
  • ExPASy is the SIB Bioinformatics Resource Portal which provides access to scientific databases and software tools (i.e., resources) in different areas of life sciences including proteomics, genomics, phylogeny, systems biology, population genetics, transcriptomics etc. (see Categories in the left menu). On this portal you find resources from many different SIB groups as well as external institutions.
  • Proteome Software – Download Scaffold
  • XCMS Online is a cloud-based metabolomic data processing platform that provides high-quality metabolomic analysis in a user-friendly, web-based format.
  • The LIPID MAPS infrastructure is a unique resource for the biomedical community. In addition to providing the largest database of lipid molecular structures, the lipid maps resource contains information on the lipid proteome, quantitative estimates of lipids in the human plasma, the first complete map of the macrophage lipidome, and a host of tools for lipid biology including mass spectrometry tools, structure tools and pathway tools.
  • The Human Metabolome Database (HMDB) is a freely available electronic database containing detailed information about small molecule metabolites found in the human body. It is intended to be used for applications in metabolomics, clinical chemistry, biomarker discovery and general education.
  • The software package OMA & OPA was created to support the interpretation of oligonucleotide mass spectra. It can rapidly calculate all theoretically possible fragment ions for a given input sequence and annotate them to an experimental spectrum, thus, saving a large amount of manual processing time.
  • Ariadne - a database search engine for identification and chemical analysis of RNA using tandem mass spectrometry data
