Over the past 20 years, advances in high-throughput biological techniques and the availability of computational resources including fast Internet access have resulted in an explosion of large genome-scale data sets "big data." While such data are readily available for download and personal use and analysis from a variety of repositories, often such analysis requires access to seldom-available computational skills. As a result a number of databases have emerged to provide scientists with online

This chapter focuses on the Eukaryotic Pathogen Databases (EuPathDB: Bioinformatic Resource Center (BRC) and illustrates some of the available tools and methods.
