Yale Research Accelerator
The YCCI Research Accelerator is designed to facilitate scientific collaboration and resource sharing throughout Yale and beyond. Researchers can share and discuss data, reagents, human samples, laboratory protocols, validated antibodies, cell lines, research projects and more.  The Accelerator can be modified to work with researchers in professional organizations as well.   Check it out!

Finding Patents

Scopus is a comprehensive scientific, medical, technical and social science database.  It allows users to limit search results to patents. Try it at SCOPUS. You can also find a link to Scopus under the Resources section of our website.

Also try SciFinder Scholar.  SciFinder Scholar requires that you download the application to your computer.

Other Yale sites with patent information include:

Enzyme, Gene & Protein Databases

BIOBASE Knowledge Library (Yale Library Resource)

The BIOBASE Knowledge Library™ (BKL), an expanded version of the Proteome Bioknowledge Database, is a collection of gene-regulation and protein oriented scientific databases created from the peer-reviewed scientific literature. The TRANSFAC®, TRANSPATH® and PROTEOME™ products are included in BIOBASE.

BioSystems Database (NCBI)

The NCBI BioSystems Database provides integrated access to biological systems and their component genes, proteins, and small molecules, as well as literture describing those biosystems and other related data throughout Entrez.


BRENDA is one of the main collection of enzyme functional data available to the scientific community. It isavailable free of charge.


Simultaneously search multiple life sciences databases at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Entrez provides integrated access to nucleotide and protein sequence data from >160,000 organisms, along with 3D protein structures, genomic mapping information, PubMed MEDLINE, and more. Sequence data are combined from various sources, including GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ, RefSeq, PIR-International, PRF, Swiss-Prot, and PDB.

European Bioinformatics Institute

The Institute manages databases of biological data including nucleic acid, protein sequences and macromolecular structures. The Institute also provides an exhaustive web-based collection of tools for the field of bioinformatics. A number of applications and databases can be found at EBI that are not offered by other resources.


GeneCards is a searchable, integrated, database of human genes that provides concise genomic related information, on all known and predicted human genes.

Nucleic Acids Research Molecular Biology Database Collection 

A public resource that contains links to the databases described in this issue of Nucleic Acids Research, previous NAR database issues, as well as a selection of other molecular biology databases that are freely available on the web and might be useful to the molecular biologist.
