GenBank Cumulative Updates
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
