NCBI

National Center for Biotechnology Information. An agency established in 1988 as a national (US) resource for molecular biology information. NCBI creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analysing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information to better understand molecular processes affecting human health and disease.
