There is already a really comprehensive collection of sites - all in all, 
69 databanks at 11 servers. Look at http://www.embl-heidelberg.de/srs/srsc
(this is Thure Etzold's SRS server system). 

The big pain of the biological database arena is that there are so many 
similar and interlinked databases that an individual retrieval is no longer 
the most desirable thing to do. Rather, the INTERLINKING of these data 
is the main issue. Alternatively, COMBINING queries is required - e.g., do 
two searches and get only those which show up as results in both. The 
URL mentioned above (http://www.embl-heidelberg.de/srs/srsc) gets you 
into a database web system which does precisely that. The queries written 
by Ewan have not even half of that functionality - and surely much less
