SciGuide is an electronic directory of foreign and Russian open access scientific resources on the Internet. The aim of the directory is to assist users to locate open access academic and scholarly content and to facilitate science communication for researchers and experts of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS). The directory is being developed jointly by the Branch and the Department of Collection Development and Acquisitions of the State Public Scientific Technical Library of SB RAS.

*AGRIS (* International System for Agricultural Science and Technology providing access to bibliographic information on agricultural science and technology. AGRIS started in 1974 by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, to serve users from both developed and developing countries, to enable access to available knowledge in agriculture, science and technology. AGRIS facilitates access to publications, journal articles, monographs, book chapters, and grey literature - including unpublished science and technical reports, theses, dissertations and conference papers.
*Allen Brain Atlas (* Allen Institute Portal. Contains transcriptomic atlases for mouse and man.
*ARKive (*A resource of Wildscreen international organization that was created with Abu-Dhabi Environment Agency and supported by sir David Attenborough, the world famous naturalist. Unique photos of flora and fauna of the Earth are presented.
*Anthrosource (*Anthrosource offers a digital searchable database containing the past, present and future AAA publications, more than 250,000 articles from AAA journals, newsletters, bulletins and monographs in a single place, and cross-disciplinary resources for all things anthropological.
*The Biodiversity Heritage Library (*The Biodiversity Heritage Library improves research methodology by collaboratively making biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.
*Birding News and Features - eBird (*eBird's goal is to maximize the utility and accessibility of bird observations made each year by recreational and professional bird watchers. In 2006, participants reported more than 4.3 million bird observations across North America.
*BOLD (*The Barcode of Life Data System (BOLD) is an online workbench and database that supports the assembly and use of DNA barcode data. BOLD is a cloud-based data storage and analysis platform developed at the Centre for Biodiversity Genomics in Canada. It consists of four main modules, a data portal, an educational portal, a registry of BINs (putative species), and a data collection and analysis workbench.
*Cancer GeneticsWeb (*The site provides comprehensive links to reliable information about genes, their associated proteins, and genetic mutations associated with cancer and related disorders. Each gene page includes links to major genetic databases.
*Catalogue of Life (* Catalogue of Life includes all species of live nature that are recorded by the professionals.
*CBS-KNAW culture collection (*The CBS-KNAW culture collection is the largest one in the world with more 100.000 strains of fungi (including yeasts) and bacteria.
*Complete Work of Charles Darwin Online (*Free-access (pdf-format) Darwin works that have been prepared by a historian of science Dr. John van Wyhe (a Fellow of Tembusu College, National University of Singapore).
*EURExpress (*EURExpress is a Transcriptome Atlas Database for Mouse Embryo (European Community Project).
*European Bioinformatics Institute (* Portal of European Bioinformatics Institute that is a subsidiary of the European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL). It offers an information on biological experiments and gives an access to several molecular data bases.
*ExPASy (* Portal of SIB Bioinformatics Resource that gives an access to DBs and resource on various fields of biological sciences including proteomics, genomics, phylogeny, system biology, population genetics, transcriptomics etc.
*Fungal databases - nomenclature and species banks (* Fungal Databases that are supported by International Mycology Association.
*Fungal Genetics Stock Center (*FONT> Open Repository Database on Fungal Genetics.
*GenAtlas (* A specialized data base on gene structure, expression and function, gene mutations. It offers to search by specific gene or phenotype. Reference information search is available.
*Interactive list of biological databases (*A catalogue of biological data bases of a broad scope that is published by Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) Journal.
*KEGG LIGAND Database (* A database consisting of chemical substances and reactions that are relevant to life. It is a composite database consisting of COMPOUND, GLYCAN, REACTION, RPAIR, and ENZYME databases, whose entries are identified by C, G, R, RP, and EC numbers, respectively. ENZYME is derived from the IUBMB/IUPAC Enzyme Nomenclature, but the others are internally developed and maintained.
*Learn. Genetics (* The website from the Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah contains a massive amount of information on genetics. There are detailed explorations of transcription and translation, heredity and traits, and cells. Each topic page has links to other topic pages for review and for further information. There are also four virtual labs: DNA extraction, gel electrophoresis, PCR, and DNA microarrays. In addition to basic genetics, the site also has some segments on topics such as epigenetics, the science of addiction, genetic disorders, and pharmacogenomics. There are also useful links to other Internet sites, including one linking to a list of videos and images of actual cells.
*NCBI databases (*Databases of the National Center for Biotechnology Information contain information on biomedicine and genomics
*Plants For A Future (*Plants For A Future (PFAF) data base that includes about 7000 plant species
*Protein Information Resource (*PIR is an integrated public bioinformatics resource to support genomic, proteomic and systems biology research and scientific studies.copy (mirror) of the database.
*RCSB Protein Data Bank (*The PDB archive contains information about experimentally determined structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies.
*REBASE (* The database on restriction ferments.
*Registry of Biological Repositories (*The global registry of institutional and other biorepositories that has been supported by Barcode of Live, The Global Biodiversity Information Facility and National Center for Biotechnology Information.
*UniProt (* The Universal Protein Resource (UniProt) is UniProt Knowledgebase data bases (UniProtKB), the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef), and the UniProt Archive (UniParc). It is one of the most comprehensive information directories on proteins and its functions.
*Virtual Library Botany (Biosciences) (*A virtual library on plant biology (agriculture, ecology, biotechnology, gardening, forestry etc)
*Whole Mouse Catalog (*The catalogue of Internet resources of particular interest to scientific researchers using mice or rats in their work (genome, cell, organism etc.)
*World Flora Online (*The World Flora Online is an open-access, Web-based compendium of the world’s plant species. It will be a collaborative, international project, building upon existing knowledge and published floras, checklists and revisions but will also require the collection and generation of new information on poorly know plant groups and plants in unexplored regions
* (* An electronic biological library containing Russian books and articles.
