SSBD: Systems Science of Biological Dynamics
SSBD is a database that collects and shares quantitative biological dynamics data, microscopy images, and software tools. SSBD provides a rich set of resources for analyzing quantitative biological data, such as single-molecule, cell, and gene expression nuclei. Quantitative biological data are collected from a variety of species, sources and methods. These include data obtained from both experiment and computational simulation.
