NOTIFICATION: Permanent migration of all CSB.DB services and functionalities on 1.1.2016.
Herewith we inform you that all CSB.DB databases have been migrated at the beginning of 2016. This includes all gene correlation and expression databases, the GMD@CSB.DB module and all associated databases
The BestFit software, a tool for non-aqueous fractionation data analysis, will also be available by the Experimental Systems Biology Research Group headed by Dr. Patrick Giavalisco.
We thank all users, contributors, and collaborators of CSB.DB at the Max Planck Institute for their long-standing support.
Yours sincerely, the CSB.DB Curator and the CSB.DB Developmental Core Team

The main aim of the Comprehensive Systems-Biology database is to provide tools which support insight into life's complexity pyramid. CSB.DB focused on building, maintaining and providing biological databases and information services to support formulation of hypotheses about the functional involvement of genes, metabolites and proteins, respectively.

You can get a short description of the databases we have available by choosing the appropriate category on the list below.

The Co-Response Databases @ CSB.DB back to top

The CoR.DBs@CSB.DB contains transcriptional co-responses (gene-gene correlations) of various key model organisms. By scanning for the best co-responses among changing transcript levels these databases allows to infer hypotheses on the functional interaction of genes.
Currently three databases of different model organism are supported:

AthCor@CSB.DB: The AthCoR@CSB.DB contains transcriptional co-responses (gene-gene correlations) of the eukaryotic plant model organism Arabidopsis thaliana.

SceCor@CSB.DB: The SceCoR@CSB.DB contains transcriptional co-responses (gene-gene correlations) of the eukaryotic model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

EcoCor@CSB.DB: The EcoCoR@CSB.DB contains transcriptional co-responses (gene-gene correlations) of the prokaryotic model organism Escherichia coli.

The Metabolic & Analytical Databases @ CSB.DB back to top

The MADBs@CSB.DB contains information for analyses, detection and identifcation of small molecules / metabolites. Currently one database is supported: the MSRI@CSB.DB. A second database, Analytics@CSBDB, will be accessible end of july 2004.

MSRI@CSB.DB: The MSRI@CSB.DB contains libraries of mass spectral and retention time indices (RI) which can be used with the Nist software to identify metabolites according their spectral tags and RI's.

The CSB.DB Associated Web Pages & Databases back to top

The CSB.DB associated pages are just pages describing expert annotated multi-gene families or other high throughput data and contains information on gene functions, which are manually curated by specialists in specific applied research areas..

Currently, the PSDB is supported which provides significant information on gene functions and results of experimental analyses of plant subtilisin-like serine proteases (subtilases).
