Sites with general resources

Bionformatics at the NIH
Site contains information on the Biomedical Information Science and Technology Initiative (BISTI), which encompasses bioinformatics and computational biology. Includes some useful external links.
The Bioinformatics Resource
A directory of information and links related to bioinformatics, maintained by the CCP11 Project.
Bioinformatics
Directory of information and links related to bioinformatics and databases of genes and proteins.
National Center for Genome Resources
NCGR is a non-profit bioinformatics research institute that develops and provides databases and analytical tools which enable scientists to conduct genomic research.
European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI)
Site contains databases, information, and tools for research in genomics and proteomics.
Institute of Bioinformatics

Recommended references: Magazine/journal articles

The Bioinformatics Gold Rush
Ken Howard
Scientific American, July 2000, pp. 58-63
The Human Genome Project has developed a database of (essentially) the entire sequence of human DNA. Making all this information available so as to enable the development of useful new drugs is a whole new challenge.
Mining the Genome
Antonio Regalado
Technology Review, September-October 1999, pp. 56-63
The Human Genome Project and other research efforts that track expression of genes have produced massive amounts of data. Very sophisticated pattern recognition and data analysis algorithms are needed to identify gene function or malfunction, knowledge of which may lead to the development of beneficial new drugs.
