Following 6 databases have been added to the search index of Life Science Database Cross Search.

  • [Pt_spiderBASE]: Pt_spiderBASE is a database for ESTs of the spider Parasteatoda tepidariorum, a model arthropod to study developmental biology, comparative embryology and evolutionary development.
  • [FAIRsharing.org]: This site for FAIRsharing.org is a registry site intended to promote data-sharing in the sciences, such as life, environmental, and biomedical sciences. It consists of "Standards", "Databases", "Policies", and "Collections" sections that catalog both in-house and crowd-sourced curated descriptions. The Biosharing.org (https: //biosharing.org) has been developed into the FAIRsharing.org in July, 2017.
  • [NBDC RDF Portal]: This is a portal site that integrates life science databases in RDF format. The portal was jointly developed by the JST National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and the Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS), Research Organization of Information and Systems. The DBCLS formulated guidelines for the construction of high quality RDF data (http://wiki.lifesciencedb.jp/mw/RDFizingDatabaseGuideline), and publishes only those data that meet a minimum level of quality for a highly reliable database. Users can browse the summaries of the data for the various databases. Data downloads and SPARQL (standard query language for RDF format data) searches are also possible.
  • [GlyTouCan]: GlyTouCan is an international repository of glycan structures. This database contains uncurated glycan structures ranging in resolution from monosaccharide composition to fully defined structures, as long as there are no inconsistencies in the structure. The database allows users to search by text, graphic input or motif, and browse using motif-list or glycan-list.
