We present here, the salient aspects of three databases: Olfactory Receptor Database (ORDB) is a repository of genomics and proteomics information of ORs; OdorDB stores information related to odorous compounds, specifically identifying those that have been shown to interact with olfactory rectors; and OdorModelDB disseminates information related to computational models of olfactory receptors (ORs). The data stored among these databases is integrated. Presented in this chapter are descriptions of these resources, which are part of the SenseLab suite of databases, a discussion of the computational infrastructure that enhances the ef fi cacy of information storage, retrieval, dissemination, and automated data population from external sources.
