MicrobesOnline is a complete resource dedicated to microbes.













Multi-Omics Profiles

Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) portal contains genotypes and transcriptome profiles of 53 non-diseased tissues from almost 1000 individuals, allwoing to study tissue-specific expression and regulations (eQTLs, sQTLs).

cBioportal integrates genomic, transcriptomic profiles of tumor biopsies with clinical information for all cancer types.
Aging Atlas provides user-friendly functionalities to explore age-related changes in gene expression
Single Cell Expression Atlas contains transcriptome profiles at single-cell level for several organisms






















Multi-Omics Data

Raw data for all organisms, but requires analysis!
GEO is a functional genomics data repository with raw data for all organisms containing data from: microarrays, RNAseq, ChIPseq, etc.
SRA is a high-throughput sequencing repository with raw data for all organisms. 
UCSC Genome Browser to interactively visualize pre-processed muti-omics data















Drug Discovery


The Clue Command allows to depict the connectivity map for specific compounds or assess their effect in gene expression



The Clue Repurposing allows to explore ~5000 drugs to find potential drug repurposing opportunities to impreove disease treatments
