Find Data Repositories

Re3data is a site for helping people identify and locate online repositories of research data. (Merged with Databib, and managed by DataCite)

Users and bibliographers create and curate records that describe data repositories that users can search.

Use the Advanced Search with keywords to find related repositories; to find the group in the box to the right, I used

Microbiology Data Repositories

Selected microbiology repositories from Databib.  Use for finding, and for some, depositing data. Mouse-over for more info.

Resource for quantitative and predictive food microbiology.

Microbial Protein Interaction Database
MPIDB provides physical microbial interactions.

Provides molecular and biological data on genes proven to affect the outcome of pathogen-host interactions.

Reservoirs of Antibiotic Resistance Network (ROAR)
The ROAR Isolate Database is a searchable collection of commensal and complimentary pathogen isolate datasets. Open only to members.

Data on arthropod vectors of human pathogens. Sequence data, gene expression data, images, population data, and insecticide resistance data for arthropod vectors are available for download.

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
Provides data which can be translated for diagnostics, treatments or therapies within the context of global health.
