Key Research Resources
BRENDA. "BRENDA is the main collection of enzyme functional data available to the scientific community."
WebReactions. "WebReactions introduces a new concept for the retrieval of reactions from a large database in which reactions are indexed ... by the bond changes which occur."
mylims.org. "mylims.org allows anybody to store and process NMR spectra on-line. By default all your spectra are only accessible to yourself but you may decide to share your spectra with a group of people or to anybody.
ChemSynthesis. "ChemSynthesis is a freely accessible database of chemicals. This website contains substances with their synthesis references and physical properties such as melting point, boiling point and density. There are currently more than 40,000 compounds and more than 45,000 synthesis references in the database."
ChemSpider. "ChemSpider is a free chemical structure database providing fast text and structure search access to over 26 million structures from hundreds of data sources."
ChemWiki: The Dynamic Chemistry Textbook. "The ChemWiki project is a collaborative approach toward chemistry education where an Open Access textbook environment is constantly being written and re-written partly by students and partly by faculty members resulting in a free Chemistry textbook to supplement conventional paper-based books."
Protein Data Bank (PDB). "The PDB archive contains information about experimentally-determined structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies."

EndNote is a bibliographic manager software program which allows you to keep track of sources you use in your research, include sources in your research papers in the form of footnotes and/or literature cited, prepare annotated bibliographies, etc.
*Note: If you have a previous edition of EndNote installed it is recommended that you uninstall it before installing the new edition.
