Taxonomy Browser Links to More Resources

The Taxonomy Browser now displays many more links to the diverse data sets within the Entrez system along with links to related information from external datasets through LinkOut. The Entrez database links displayed include those for Nucleotide, Protein, Structure, SNP, UniGene, UniSTS, PopSet, PubMed Central, 3D-Domains, Genomes, and Taxonomy. As an example, clicking on the taxonomy record for Danio rerio, the zebrafish, displays standard lineage information along with links to related records from other Entrez databases, arranged in a table, as shown in Figure 1. Links to additional information, such as mapping data and to external LinkOut resources, are also included when available. This functionality is incorporated into each taxonomic node so that users can retrieve related information for taxonomic nodes, such as “Danio”, that lie above the species level.

Outside groups interested in participating in the LinkOut program in the taxonomy domain should contact us at:
