The genomic age has yielded exciting opportunities for the understanding of biological processes with greater breadth and depth than before, and concomitant, exponential increases in the amount of data being generated on a routine basis. Genome databases collect, organize, display, and provide tools to analyze and explore the otherwise potentially overwhelming amount of information available, and they are therefore necessary for research communities to fully take advantage of the data. In this chapter, we survey the database resources available to the Candida albicans genomics research community, discuss the types of information available in these databases, and consider additional resources and tools that will need to be developed to effectively deal with additional data types that will be generated in the future read more ...
