We have written a lot about stem cell databases. New databases are coming up all the time. We decide to make up-to-date list of all stem cell (or related) databases. The current list includes 20 databases.

1DegreeBio – Stem Cell
Stem cell antibody reviews.
Read more here.

StemDB (EuroStemCell)
Cell lines, antibody and markers, gene expression, protocols.

European Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry (EU)
Registry of pluripotent stem cell lines

Bioinformatics-based “online assay” for human cell pluripotency.
Read more here.

Networking in regenerative medicine – Europe, list of companies and initiatives.

Characterization Tool (Germany)
Library of cell types, lineages and markers.

Stem Cell Lineage Database (Uconn)
Lineages characterization.

StemFormatics (Australia)
Stem cell bioinformatics.

Please tell us what is your experience with these databases? Have you ever used one? You can also add and suggest any other stem cell database, which we possibly missed and we will update this list accordingly.
