The aim of the Repository for Biological Sciences Information including its' new liver disease and disease resistance resources is to provide reliable information on various areas of scientific interest in a format that can be digested easily. The information is grouped according to interrelated sections and categories and presented in the simplest words and terms possible helping users understand the context of whatever topic information is searched on.
The Disease Sciences Information Section contains scientific information on any kind of disorder in the structure or function of a living organism. A disease is any kind of disorder in the structure or function of an organism, including humans, plants, and animals. Disease can be caused by external factors, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, proteins, prions, and infections. However, there are also diseases that are caused by dysfunctions within the organism’s body, such as autoimmune diseases. After inclusion of the two new categories, this section contains ten categories including Animal Disease, Disease Antibodies, Health and Disease, Heart Disease, Inflammatory Disease, Lesions, Liver Disease, Disease Resistance, Syndrome, and Viral Disease. Users can receive alerts for newly published content in this section by subscribing to the Disease Sciences Information Section RSS feed.
The newly published category Syndrome contains scientific information on this group of disease symptoms that consistently occur together. In the fields of medicine and psychology, a syndrome is the association of a couple of clinically recognizable features, symptoms, signs, phenomena, or characteristics that occur as a group. The presence of one or more features then alerts the health care provider to the possible presence of other features or characteristics. Examples of syndromes are AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). The category currently contains over 3,600 articles including one on epizootics of erythrocytic inclusion body syndrome in coho salmon cultured in seawater in Japan, vogt koyanagi harada syndrome a rare association of hodgkins disease, use of ketoconazole in the treatment of cushings disease and ectopic acth syndrome, and on segregation and sporadic cases in families with hunters syndrome. Website users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to the Syndrome RSS feed.
The new category Viral Disease contains scientific information on on diseases caused by a virus which is an extremely small infection agent with a nucleic acid molecule encased in a protein coat. A virus can only multiply within the living cells of a host organism. The term virus can also be used o refer to the infection or disease caused by a viral agent. Viruses infect all kinds of organism—from humans, animals, and plants to archaea and bacteria. The typical virus particle consists of two or three parts. First, the genetic material made from DNA or RNA molecules, a protein coat that protect these nucleic acids, and in some types of viruses an envelope of lipids that covers the protein coat when the particle is outside a cellular host. The category currently contains over 5,650 articles covering experimental infection of domestic cats by cowpox virus, epizootics caused by a nuclear polyhedrosis virus in populations of Spodoptera exigua in southern Spain, survival of scrapie virus after 3 years interment, and effects in calves of mixed infections with bovine viral diarrhea virus and several other bovine viruses.

The repository groups information in the natural sciences according to interrelated sections and categories that will help readers understand the context of whatever topic is searched information on. Each unit contains a definition composed in an understandable way and each item in these sections and categories contains up to twenty clickable tags.
