Don’t worry, this isn’t a website for one of those pesky commercials you see on TV. (Send us your gold jewelry in an unmarked envelope…) Rather, this is the Genomics Of Lipid-associated Disorders DataBase. (I know, I know, that was your next guess, wasn’t it?) The goal of the site is to “integrate disparate information on the function and properties” of genes and proteins involved in disorders such as atherosclerosis and various hyperlipidemias. To that end, the site does a nice job of bringing together different types of information, as is reflected in the major categories into which the site is divided: pathways, datasets, tools, protocols, reagents, and links. Content is definitely sparse in areas, but the website fills a unique medical niche such that I hope the people behind it continue to expand its resources.
