5 Bioinformatics Link Directories You Must Visit

There are already thousands of online bioinformatics resources available, with no doubt many more to come in future.One of the limiting factors of the field is the difficulty in navigating the vast array of resources to identify the most appropriate tool(s) for what you need to do. Here are 10 websites that will help you with your search for appropriate bioinformatic tool for your own job-
The Bioinformatics Links Directory features curated links to molecular resources, tools, and databases culled from the annual Database issue and Web Server issue of the journal Nucleic Acids Research (NAR). NAR is a highly ranked open access journal of the Oxford press that publishes articles on the biological, biochemical, physical, and chemical aspects of proteins and nucleic acids involved in nucleic acid interactions and/or metabolism.

The BioMed Central Databases maintains a catalog of Web-based databases as well as a Biology Image Library. The collection can be browsed by subject area or searched by name, description, contents, and/or subject area. Best of this is that the scientific community is welcome to create a database or simply house it on the BioMed Central Databases site.
The OBRC contains manually curated links and annotations for over 2,000 bioinformatics databases and software tools. It was created by the Molecular Biology Information Service for the Health Sciences Library System at the University of Pittsburgh and can be accessed from their webpage. This freely available, searchable database arranges resources by categories and sub-categories such as Structure Databases and Analysis Tools, Proteomics Resources, and Enzymes and Pathways.It is a one-stop guided information gateway to the major bioinformatics databases and software tools on the Web. 
ExPASy is the  Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics  Bioinformatics Resource Portal which provides access to scientific databases and software tools in different areas of biological sciences including proteomics, genomics, phylogeny, systems biology, population genetics, transcriptomics, bioinformatics.

This directory contains links for free E-Books, softwares, tools, protocols and so many other things that may be useful for scientist including bioinformaticians. 

Bonus Bioinformatics Links Directory

123 genomics is a Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics Knowledge Base. you can find the servers and tools that are arranged categorically for easy use and search for different uses.

This is another good bioinformatics directory where you browse tools category-wise and suggests tools also.
