Over recent years databases have become an extremely important resource for biomedical research. Immunology research is increasingly dependent on access to extensive biological databases to extract existing information, plan experiments, and analyse experimental results. This review describes 15 immunological databases that have appeared over the last 30 years. In addition, important issues regarding database design and the potential for misuse of information contained within these databases are discussed. Access pointers are provided for the major immunological databases and also for a number of other immunological resources accessible over the World Wide Web (WWW).
