Biobar – Browsing toolbar for the Life Sciences

The biobar project is a bioinformatics power-browsing toolbar for Mozilla-based browsers. This toolbar provides access to major biological data resources. The primary advantage of this tool is that it allows a biologist to browse and retrieve data from Genomic, Proteomic, Functional, Literature, Taxonomic, Structural, Plant and Animal-specific databases. In addition to the browsing features, biobar also provides links to important bioinformatics sites and services including services at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ). The tool also provides links to major data deposition sites for nucleotide, protein and 3D-structure data. Finally, the menu also contains links to many Sequence, Structure alignment and analysis tools.

With version 1.3 of biobar it is possible to customize the search menu of the toolbar. The procedure involves editing an XML file and saving the file in your profile directory.
