OpenHelix

Provides molecular sequence records to help locate gene and protein data.

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

The RefSeq project, developed and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), provides collected, curated, and consistent non-redundant reference molecular sequence records that help researchers locate important gene and protein data. Processes established by the RefSeq team generate reference sequence sets for many species. RefSeq records link to primary source material, appropriate literature, and additional information from other biomedical resources. Expanded project directions offer more data types. RefSeq, and similar projects with ties to RefSeq, continue to provide quality, reviewed, reference sequences for a variety of projects. RefSeq data can be found in many bioinformatics tools.

More about the resource:

The RefSeq project coordinated by NCBI has been providing reference sequence data for more than a decade. This crucial data is found in resources throughout the bioinformatics ecosystem in an extensive range of tools and projects. RefSeq contributes to other reference sequence projects such as RefSeqGene and Locus Reference Genome. Familiarity with RefSeq processes and records will help users to effectively find and understand key features of molecular sequences.
