OptoBase is an annotated database, which aims to cover all existing not ion-flux based optogenetic switches and publications. It is meant for both expert optogeneticists, to easily keep track of the field, as well as for all researchers who find optogenetics inviting as a powerful tool to address their biological questions of interest.
