The biobar project is a one-stop toolbar that provides access to all major biological data resources. The primary advantage of this tool is that it allows a biologist to browse and retrieve data from Genomic, Proteomic, Functional, Literature, Taxonomic and Structural databases. The tool also provides links to major data deposition sites for nucleotide, protein and 3D-structure data and contains links to many Sequence, Structure alignment and analysis tools. Databases supported include NCBI, DDBJ, and EBI databases.
Compatible with versions up to 0.10
