DAVID Knowledgebase -- a backend database used for all DAVID bioinformatics tools

What you can do:
A gene-centered database integrating heterogeneous gene annotation resources to facilitate high-throughput gene functional analysis.
Highlights:
  • The DAVID Knowledgebase is built around the DAVID Gene Concept, a single-linkage method to agglomerate tens of millions of gene/protein identifiers from a variety of public genomic resources into DAVID gene clusters.
  • The grouping of such identifiers improves the cross-reference capability, particularly across NCBI and UniProt systems, enabling more than 40 publicly available functional annotation sources to be comprehensively integrated and centralized by the DAVID gene clusters.
  • The simple, pair-wise, text format files which make up the DAVID Knowledgebase are freely downloadable for various data analysis uses.
  • In addition, a well organized web interface allows users to query different types of heterogeneous annotations in a high-throughput manner.
