Allen Brain Atlas
The Allen Brain Atlas project, named for its founder Paul G. Allen, will combine the disciplines of neuroanatomy and genomics to create the most comprehensive map of the brain at the cellular level, illustrating the functional anatomy of the brain through a collection of gene expression maps, brain circuits and cell locations.

National Center for Microscopy & Imaging Research
The National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (NCMIR) is a federally funded research facility specializing in the development of technologies for improving the understanding of biological structure and function relationships spanning the dimensional range from 5nm 3 to 50µm 3.
Imaging Mass Spectrometry -- mouse brain
Describes a method for 3-D mapping of proteins in specific regions of the mouse brain by imaging serial sections with Maldi-Tof.
The BioPathways Consortium sees an urgent need to discuss and develop new informatics technologies that will support many forms of biological information in order to ensure the success of capturing, organizing, and utilizing pathway-related information
The National Resource for Cell Analysis and Modeling (NRCAM), developer of the Virtual Cell Modeling and Simulation Framework, is a national resource center supported by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Alliance for Cellular Signalling
This Gateway represents a unique collaboration between academia and scientific publishing and is designed to facilitate navigation of the complex world of research into cellular signaling. Information and data presented here are freely available.
SigPath is an information system designed to support quantitative studies on the signaling pathways and networks of the cell.
The Cell Centered Database or CCDB was created to house the types of high resolution 3D light and electron microscopic reconstructions produced at the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research
American Type Culture Collection (ATCC)
The ATCC maintains and distributes biological materials and cell lines.
Health Protections Agency Culture Collection
The Health Protections Agency Culture Collection is a provider of high quality cell cultures and associated services to industry and the academic research community.
Cell Line Data Base (CLDB)
CLDB , the first database set up within the Interlab Project, contains detailed information on 4.850 human and animal cell lines that are available in many Italian laboratories and in some of the most important European cell banks and cell culture collections.
NIH Cell Culture Center
The National Cell Culture Center is a research resource facility established by the National Center of Resources for Research, National Institutes of Health (NIH), to provide customized, large scale, cell culture services for basic research laboratories. The Center is housed in the modern Cell Culture Laboratory of BioVest International, Inc. For interest in contract production of secreted proteins or large scale animal cell culture, for non-research or industry use, please forward your inquiries to biovest.com.
The SenseLab Project is a long-term effort to build integrated, multidisciplinary models of neurons and neural systems. The Neuronal databases available include CellProp DB, Neuron DB and Model DB.

Human Physiome Project
The Physiome Project is a worldwide public domain effort to provide a computational framework for understanding human and other eukaryotic physiology. It aims to develop integrative models at all levels of biological organisation, from genes to the whole organism via gene regulatory networks, protein pathways, integrative cell function, and tissue and whole organ structure/function relations
Outlines NIDA’s drug abuse and addiction research strategic priorities for the next 5 years, focusing on prevention, treatment, HIV/AIDS, and other cross-cutting issues.
