In the past decades, a variety of publicly available data repositories and resources have been developed to support protein related information management, data-driven hypothesis generation and biological knowledge discovery. However, there is also an increasing confusion for the researchers who are trying to quickly find the appropriate resources to help them solve their problems. In this chapter, we present a comprehensive review (with categorization and description) of major protein bioinformatics databases and resources that are relevant to comparative proteomics research. We conclude the chapter by discussing the challenges and opportunities for developing new protein bioinformatics databases.
