General Databases
Tree of Life
Organized by the Maddisons, this is an attempt to have the entire phylogeny of life on earth (as currently understood) on-line and accessible to everyone. The site has many pages on fish and arthropods, with more coverage being added all the time.

Fledgling project to establish a relational database of phylogenetic information, especially published trees and data matrices. The project has begun by concentrating on green plant data (particularly angiosperms), but hopes to eventually include studies on all organisms, based on all types of data.

UCMP Phylogeny Exhibit
Educational exhibit on the major groups of life on earth, with information about the fossil record, ecology, morphology, and systematics of each group. Also try the UCMP WebLift to Taxa, which is an index to all groups currently treated.

Molecular Databases
This site allows you to search and download registered gene sequences, with information on the gene's function, and the organism in which it was found.

Image Library of Biological Macromolecules (IMB Jena)
Includes RNA and protein structures, some with VRML versions

Immunogenetics Database
International database specializing in immunoglobulins, T-cell receptors, and major histocompatibility complex molecules of all vertebrate species

Oligonucleotide Probe Database
Downloadable data, mailing list and discussion

Ribosomal Database Project (RDP-II)
Offers ribosome related data, analysis services, and software

Offers access to major sequence and molecular structure databases, as well as programs

Annotated protein sequence database
