A growing repository of the vast array of databases and online tools in the field of biology and its sub-disciplines. Includes extended descriptions of each resource and links to tutorials.


PHI-base (Pathogen Host Interactions) is a database collecting information on the genes and proteins involved in the interactions that occur between hosts and the pathogenic organisms that infect them. PHI-base collects information on genetic variations of the host and pathogens, disease states where interactions are know, taxonomic information of pathogens, orthologous and parologus genes involved in infection between species, and potential chemical compounds to interfere with the infection process.
