BLAST: Local Alignment Search Tool
The classic webpage to see how similar/dissimilar two sequences are, BLAST finds regions of local similarity between sequences. The program compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases and calculates the statistical significance of matches.

DAVID Functional Annotation Microarray Analysis
Have a gene list and don’t know what to do with it? A National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) databse DAVID enhances data analysis in functional annotation, particularly for microarray and proteomics studies.

The Ensembl project produces genome databases for vertebrates and other eukaryotic species, and makes this information freely available online.

Everything you always wanted to know about your gene of interest: aliases, expression, function and much more, GeneCards provides gene-centric information, automatically mined and integrated from a myriad of data sources, resulting in a web-based card for each of the tens of thousands of human gene entries.

Human Protein Reference Database (HPRD)
The Human Protein Reference Database represents a centralized platform to visually depict and integrate information pertaining to domain architecture, post-translational modifications, interaction networks and disease association for each protein in the human proteome. This database gives you a wide overview on your proteins locations, domains, interactions and more.

National Center for Biotechnology Information
Largest database collection for all the topics you need. Go to GENE for gene

Protein Data Bank (PDB)
The Protein Data Bank (PDB) archive is the single worldwide repository of information about the 3D structures of large biological molecules, including proteins and nucleic acids. Managed by the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB) it is freely and publicly available to the global community. Want to see how your protein looks in 3D? All structural information and interactions can be found with this webpage.

Web of Science – Citation report
The Citation Report provides aggregate citation statistics for a set of search results. These statistics including total or average number of citations of items.
