What is CNGBdb ?

China National GeneBank DataBase (CNGBdb) is a unified platform built for biological big data sharing and application services to the research community. Based on the big data and cloud computing technologies, it provides data services such as archive, analysis, knowledge search, management authorization, and visualization. At present, CNGBdb has integrated large amounts of internal and external molecular data and other information from CNGB, NCBI, EBI, DDBJ, etc., indexed by search, covering 10 data structures. Moreover, CNGBdb correlates living sources, biological samples and bioinformatic data to realize the traceability of comprehensive data.

CNGBdb Data Resources

Based on the internal data source from CNGB and external data source from NCBI, EBI, DDBJ, etc., and following the data standards of international standard alliance such as INSDC, DataCite, GA4GH, GGBN, ACMG, CNGBdb builds data structures covering literature, gene, variation, protein, etc., and provides data sharing and application services such as data archive, query and retrieval, and analysis.
