Custom Search Engine For Bioinformatics

Mostly because I need this every time, I wrote a few "Custom Search" engines for dbSNP, Hapmap and the ICSC Genome Browser. Those engines are available at http://lindenb.integragen.org/opensearch/opensearch.html.

Although I don't frequently search genetics data like this, I do make extensive use of Biobar, a neat Mozilla plug-in that makes searching a range of biological databases a snap.

I'm not sure if anyone is still developing the plug in, but I think it would be useful for a lot of people (including yourself)if the sources you mentioned were implemented in there.

Just a thought...

At CureHunter we are developing a semantic approach to searching PubMed. Currently we are focused on Drug-Disease interactions with the goal of extracting relevant treatment options... for any disease. For example: the medical research interface for Colon Cancer

Please give it a try if you get the chance.

If anyone likes the firefox search toolbar, I've made plugins for S. pombe genedb, SGD, and UCSC Yeast genome browser. Just go to mycroft.mozdev.org and search for them.
