Many libraries around the world subscribe to library databases for use by the faculty, students, and staff within the university community.  However, many traditional library databases are limited to citation indexes which provide as search results a list of references that the user then needs to read.  With academic research becoming more competitive, the trend has been for many libraries serving life science and medical research communities to introduce supplementary specialized databases and tools into their collection of electronic resources that can help users reduce the number of references needing to be read.

BIOBASE offers an online collection of databases containing information extracted and organized from the peer-reviewed literature for topics of interest to scientists working in the life sciences. Specialized tools allow users to interpret their experimental data and quickly answer complex biological questions specific to their research.
