Functional genomic resources at EMBL-EBI

 

EMBL-EBI has two main functional genomic resources:

1 ArrayExpress: A database of functional genomics data.

2 Expression Atlas: A database containing analysed gene expression data derived from sets stored in ArrayExpress.

The relationship between the two databases and other software / resources is shown in Figure 2 (below).

ArrayExpress and the Atlas are linked to other EMBL-EBI databases such as ENA, Ensembl and Uniprot, which provide additional information on DNA and protein sequences and functions (Figure 2). Moreover, the two databases link out to data analysis software such as Bioconductor (6) - a tool for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data.
