Overview of the LiMB database

Nucleic Acids Res. 1989 Aug 11;17(15):5885-99. doi: 10.1093/nar/17.15.5885.


The rapidly increasing number of databases relevant to molecular biology has given rise to a need for a coordinated effort to identify, characterize, and link them. The LiMB database, which contains information about molecular biology and related databases, is a step in that direction. It serves molecular biologists seeking data sets containing information relevant to their research, and is also intended to anticipate the needs of database designers and managers building software links for related data sets. We present an abbreviated version of the database here; the full database is available free of charge as described below.
