BiomedicalPDA™ Databases

Below is a sample list of the BiomedicalPDA™ databases that will soon be available. Note that the database entitled Restriction Enzymes by Richard J. Roberts and Dana Macelis is available free-of-charge and can be installed on your PDA by downloading the BiomedicalPDA™ Basic Application

Restriction Enzymes
(REBASE)
Contributed by Richard J. Roberts and Dana Macelis
New England BioLabs
MolBioPDA

The Restriction Enzymes database is a collection of information about type II restriction enzymes, recognition and cleavage sites, isoschizomers (enzymes that recognize the same pattern, and cut at the same bases), and commercial availability. The restriction enzyme data for this project has been provided by Dr. Richard J. Roberts and Dana Macelis, who maintain the Restriction Enzyme Database REBASE on-line.

CD Molecules
Contributed by Heddy Zola and Ian C. Nicholson
Child Health Research Institute, Australia
ImmunoPDA

The CD classification defines the molecules, primarily on the surface of leucocytes, involved in immune function. The BiomedicalPDA™CD Molecules database derives from the recent international Workshops on Human Leucocyte Differentiation Antigens (HLDA).

The primary focus of the HLDA Workshops is on human leucocytes, but the nomenclature is widely used for homologous molecules in other species, and for molecules on cells other than leucocytes, with a role in the immune system. The CD Molecules database provides key information each of the HLDA-recognized CD molecules (CD1-CD247).

Immunology Glossary
Contributed by Richard Coico
CUNY Medical School, New York
ImmunoPDA

The Immunology Glossary contains hundreds of immunology terms and definitions. It is adapted, with permission, from Immunology A Short Course by E. Benjamini, R. Coico, and G. Sunshine. John Wiley and Sons, Inc. The glossary is fully searchable.

Antimicrobial Agents
Contributed by Dani McBeth
CUNY Medical School, New York
MicroPDA

The Antimicrobial Agents database lists 172 drugs including antibacterials, antifungals, antiparasitics and antivirals. The database is searchable and contains information about each of the indexed antimicrobial including their class and mode of action. Common uses for each drug as well as tradenames are also included.

Pathogenic Human Viruses
Contributed by Irwin Gelman
Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York
MicroPDA

The Pathogenic Human Viruses database contains current information about viruses known to be infectious in humans. The searchable database includes the following information about each virus: family, genus, structure, serotypes (where appropriate), and diseases which they can cause. Information about therapeutic treatments and vaccination protocols (where appropriate) is also included in the database.

Bacteria
Contributed by Dani McBeth
CUNY Medical School, New York
MicroPDA

The Bacteria database lists more than 90 bacteria of medical importance and includes information on bacterial causes of infections as well as new and emerging pathogens. The database is searchable and contains the following information about each bacterial organism cell shape and Gram reaction, culture characteristics, major clinical features, virulence factors, treatment and prophylaxis.

Microbiology Glossary
Contributed by Dani McBeth
CUNY Medical School, New York
MicroPDA

The Microbiology Glossary includes hundreds of basic and medical microbiology terms and definitions. It contains words and terms that cover the scope of microbiology including bacteriology, parasitology, virology, mycology, infectious disease, etc. The glossary is designed to be a resource for biomedical scientists, graduate students, physicians, medical/dental/veterinary students, and others.
