Open Source DNA Database: Genome Reviews

Open Source DNA Database: Genome Reviews

The Genome Reviews database provides an up-to-date, standardized and comprehensively annotated view of the genomic sequence of organisms with completely deciphered genomes. Currently, Genome Reviews contains the genomes of archaea, bacteria, bacteriophages and selected eukaryota. Genome Reviews is available as a MySQL relational database, or a flat file format derived from that in the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database.

MySQL is a convenient platform for open source data transactions. That means genetic data of nearly all available species can be uploaded and retrieved.

The genetic code of all species including human beings is a universal entity and should be accessed by researchers, medical doctors and non researchers.

Individual genomes, genomes of individuals in other words Identity DNA is a different issue which should not be on an open-source platform.
