Abstract

There had been a large number of biological and biomedical related databases being created over the years with a steady rise of about 10% from 2005 to 2012. However, it is difficult to navigate the range of databases as there is no current database inventory and links to databases are embedded in their respective publications. In this study, we developed a set of 91 cataloging tags based on software repositories and listed 379 database papers published in 2013. Of which, only 290 database papers have URL links to the databases. Therefore, only 290 databases were cataloged. Our catalog is given in appendix.
