dictyBase is a database that provides a centralized source of information on the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum for Dictyostelium researchers and Non-Dictyostelium researchers. This includes tutorials, dictyNews, techniques, the Stock Center, genomic and molecular information, colleague infromation, Dictyostelium literature, and much more. Scientific curation makes this database especially valuable. The search box at the top of every page can be used to search for any gene name, alias, gene product, or GenBank accession number. ...

Paramecium is a unicellular eukaryote of large size (120 micrometers) that belongs to the ciliate phylum. Ciliates share two characteristics: the presence of vibrating cilia which assure their locomotion and food capture, and nuclear dimorphism. Indeed, ciliates, like multicellular eukaryotes, separate germinal and somatic functions, but they do so in the form of two different kinds of nuclei. A diploid germinal micronucleus transmits the genetic information to the next sexual generation, while a polyploid somatic macronucleus is responsible for gene expression. The Paramecium tetraurelia macronuclear genome was recently sequenced by the Genoscope French National Sequencing Center. ParameciumDB is a new model organism database associated with the genome sequencing project. Built with core components of the Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD) project, ParameciumDB currently contains the macronuclear genome sequence and annotations, linked to available genetic data (RNA interference data and stock collection). ...

Radiolaria.org is an online database containing information about radiolarians. The idea behind Radiolaria.org is that anybody can contribute with their expertise, i.e. add species with images, descriptions, references, synonyms, taxonomy and links etc. Under each species there is also a discussion forum where you can post and exchange ideas, opinions, comments etc. Anyone has the opportunity to contribute from any web browser any time. Hopefully this will be an easy way of sharing and exchanging data between all radiolarian researchers. ... [Information of the supplier]
