EuPathDB (http://EuPathDB.org; formerly ApiDB) is an integrated database covering the eukaryotic pathogens of the genera Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Leishmania, Neospora, Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Trichomonas and Trypanosoma. While each of these groups is supported by a taxon-specific database built upon the same infrastructure, the EuPathDB portal offers an entry point to all these resources, and the opportunity to leverage orthology for searches across genera. The most recent release of EuPathDB…

EuPathDB: The Eukaryotic Pathogen database
EuPathDB (http://eupathdb.org) resources include 11 databases supporting eukaryotic pathogen genomic and functional genomic data, isolate data and phylogenomics. EuPathDB resources are built using

Title FungiDB : An integrated functional genomics database for fungi Permalink
TLDR
The underlying genomic sequence and annotation combined with functional data, additional data from the FungiDB standard analysis pipeline and the ability to leverage orthology provides a powerful resource for in silico searches.
The strategies WDK: a graphical search interface and web development kit for functional genomics databases
TLDR
The strategy system has now been deployed on all EuPathDB databases, and successfully deployed by other projects, and is available for download at code.google.com/p/strategies-wdk.
The Eukaryotic Pathogen Databases: a functional genomic resource integrating data from human and veterinary parasites.
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the Eukaryotic Pathogen Databases (EuPathDB: http://eupathdb.org) and the Bioinformatic Resource Center (BRC) and illustrates some of the available tools and methods.
ToxoDB : an integrated genomic database for the study of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum
TLDR
The integrated data are presented in an intuitive interface that permits strategic data mining across the data sets using the authors' strategy system, and it is possible to identify all annotated genes that contain a signal peptide, are expressed in tachyzoites, but not bradyzoite, have evidence of protein expression and are conserved in Neospora with only a few clicks of the cursor.
Library of Apicomplexan Metabolic Pathways: a manually curated database for metabolic pathways of apicomplexan parasites
TLDR
LAMP is a web database that provides near complete mapping from genes to the central metabolic functions for some of the prominent intracellular parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa, and a section to highlight the overall metabolic capabilities of each species.
SchistoDB: an updated genome resource for the three key schistosomes of humans
TLDR
The new release of SchistoDB provides a rich resource of genomic data for key blood flukes (genus Schistosoma) which cause disease in hundreds of millions of people worldwide and provides enhanced bioinformatics analyses and data-mining tools.
