Nucleic Acids Research Database

Numbers available :

1512 online databases sorted into 14 categories and 41 subcategories

Criteria for selection into NAR databases

Free accessible


Credible and Trustable

Significance and scientific excellence.


Novel development

Focus on various aspects of nucleic acids and proteins involved in nucleic acid metabolism interactions

Why we need to group these databases?

To provide a higher-order organization of large-scale data submitted by a single organization or a consortium, or relating to the same whole-genome assembly.

To track tools, databases, and methods in the field

So that information of the resources can be most effectively exploited

More systematic and manageable

Keyword tagging allows users to narrow down the resources that suit their needs

Why databases are created and shared?

To provide better integration and cross-referencing tools

Latest development can be kept up-to-date

To allow interaction between researchers

To store the massive information of research work

Allow multiple users to have access to data

Why some databases are no longer in the databases and dropped from it?

Deleted as they are found to be obsolete and non-responsive.

Commercialized and does not provide free version anymore

Improved annotation of the human genome made some resources that covered specific areas of the genome no longer useful

Some are integrated into larger projects
