Utopia Documents – Reading Redefined
http://utopiadocs.com/

Utopia Documents brings a fresh new perspective to reading the scientific literature, combining the convenience and reliability of the PDF with the flexibility and power of the web. Free for Linux, Mac and Windows. The scientific article has been described as a Story That Persuades With Data, but all too often the link between data and narrative is lost somewhere in the modern publishing process. Utopia Documents helps to rebuild these connections, linking articles to underlying datasets, and making it easy to access online resources relating to an article’s content. Published articles form the ‘minutes of science’, creating a stable record of ideas and discoveries. But no idea exists in isolation, and just because something has been published doesn’t mean that the story is over. Utopia Documents reconnects PDFs with the ongoing discussion, keeping you up-to-date with the latest knowledge and metrics. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

GenBank ®
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/

GenBank ® is the NIH genetic sequence database, an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences (Nucleic Acids Research, 2013 Jan;41(D1):D36-42). GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration , which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), and GenBank at NCBI. These three organizations exchange data on a daily basis. A GenBank release occurs every two months and is available from the ftp site. The release notes for the current version of GenBank provide detailed information about the release and notifications of upcoming changes to GenBank. Release notes for previous GenBank releases are also available. GenBank growth statistics for both the traditional GenBank divisions and the WGS division are available from each release. GenBank growth statistics for both the traditional GenBank divisions and the WGS division are available from each release. An annotated sample GenBank record for a Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene demonstrates many of the features of the GenBank flat file format. The GenBank database is designed to provide and encourage access within the scientific community to the most up to date and comprehensive DNA sequence information. Therefore, NCBI places no restrictions on the use or distribution of the GenBank data. However, some submitters may claim patent, copyright, or other intellectual property rights in all or a portion of the data they have submitted. NCBI is not in a position to assess the validity of such claims, and therefore cannot provide comment or unrestricted permission concerning the use, copying, or distribution of the information contained in GenBank.
