If you are a bioinformatist (or a computational biologist), you either would already be knowing this or would thank me for telling this — Nucliec Acids Research has come up with thier annual listing of molecular biology databases. This time they have close to 1000 different databases, all waiting to be mined. In my opinion, we have so much of biological data today that its really hard to focus on the right data to extract potentially useful information — every other database looks worthwhile to be mined and analyzed. Overwhelmed with this amount of data, its really difficult to focus on the right biological questions.
