CSB.DB - A Comprehensive Systems-Biology Database was developed in conjunction with various scientists and supported by public availability of expression profile experiments. Here we want acknowledge these scientists, resources and databases, who / which enabled us to use these data for cross-experiment investigations and to develop CSB.DB.

We thank the staff of the SMD database (Sherlock et al., 2001), the ASAP database (Glasner et al., 2003) and the NASC Affymetrix Facility (NASCArrays, Craigon et al., 2004) for the establishment of public accessible sources for microarray data as well as all scientists who submitted transcript profile data to these databases and thereby enabled comparative investigations. Furthermore, we thank the staff of the Free Software Foundation (FSF) for access to software under the terms of the GNU general public license. We are grateful to the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology for the support of CSB.DB. Furthermore, we acknowledge EcoGene (Rudd, 2000) and Mary Berlyn (Berlyn, 1998; CGSC) for providing public access to Escherichia coli gene annotation and gene description.
The CSB.DB Development Core Team thank Prof. Lothar Willmitzer for encouragement, continued support, and discussion of this work. Furthermore we thank Prof. Mark Stitt and Dr. Oliver Thimm (Thimm et al., 2004) for providing us with manual gene assignments of Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as all scientists involved in this project of curated gene function assignments. Moreover the comments from Dr. Leonard Krall and Dr. Dirk Buessis are gratefully acknowledged.
