Chapter 11 Web Search Terms

The list of Web sites listed in Table 11.1 provides a starting point for accessing genomic databases and Web sites. These sites have relatively stable and simple Web addresses that can be typed into the browser window. If this does not work, a Web search for the site will usually work. Each year in January, the journal Nucleic Acids Research publishes a special database issue. This issue is a valuable resource for finding currently available databases of genomic information. Following is a list of Web search terms that may be used to reach additional sites.
