Centralisation of tools for analysis of genomic data is paramount in ensuring that research is always carried out on the latest currently available data. As such, World Wide Web sites providing a range of online analyses and displays of data can play a crucial role in guaranteeing consistency of in silico work. In this respect, the protozoan parasite research community is served by several resources, either focussing on data and tools for one species or taking a broader view and providing tools for analysis of data from many species, thereby facilitating comparative studies. In this paper, we give a broad overview of the online resources available. We then focus on the GeneDB project, detailing the features and tools currently available through it. Finally, we discuss data curation and its importance in keeping genomic data 'relevant' to the research community. (c) 2005 Australian Society for Parasitology Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
