Basic Medical Sciences Databases
A selection of databases that may be useful to those in the basic medical sciences.
|While the following databases are freely available on the internet, some
of them provide bibliographic information for documents that are not owned
by the Health Sciences Library. We may be able to borrow these items through
loan. Librarians can also perform searches of many proprietary
databases, which are not listed, for a fee. Inquire at the library about

Agricola U.S. Department of Agriculture citations to publications encompassing all aspects of agriculture and allied disciplines, including animal and veterinary sciences, entomology, plant sciences, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, food and human nutrition, and earth and environmental sciences.
Biocatalysis/Biodegradation Database University of Minnesota information on microbial biocatalytic reactions and biodegradation pathways for primarily xenobiotic, chemical compounds. The goal of the UM-BBD is to provide information on microbial enzyme-catalyzed reactions that are important for biotechnology.
