China National GeneBank DataBase
The China National GeneBank database (CNGBdb) is a unified platform for biological big data sharing and application services. At present, CNGBdb has integrated a large amount of internal and external biological data from resources such as CNGB, NCBI, and the EBI. There are a number of sub databases in CNGBdb, including literature, variation, gene, genome, protein, sequence, organism, project, sample, experiment, run, and assembly. Based on underlying big data and cloud computing technologies, it provides various data services, including archive, analysis, knowledge search, management authorization of biological data. CNGBdb adopts data structures and standards of international omics, health, and medicine, such as The International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC), The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health GA4GH (GA4GH), Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN), American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), and constructs standardized data and structures with wide compatibility. All public data and data services provided by CNGBdb are freely available to all users worldwide.
