DBGET is an integrated database retrieval system for major biological databases, which are classified into five categories:
CategoryMain commandsRemark
1. KEGG databases in DBGETyesyesyesMirrored at GenomeNet
2. Other DBGET databasesyesyesyes
3. Searchable databases on the WebnoyesyesUsed as Web resources
4. Link-only databases on the Webnonoyes
5. PubMed databaseyesnoyes
Databases in the third category are integrated for keyword seach, but the actual data are to be obtained from the original sites. Databases in the fourth category are available only in the LinkDB system. PubMed is a link-only database, but the bget page is generated using the NCBI service in order to better integrate with KEGG and other DBGET databases. DBGET search targets are described on this page.
