View Resource The Interactive Fly: A Cyberspace Guide to Drosophila Genes and Their Roles in Development

Produced by Dr. Thomas Brody of the Society for Developmental Biology and hosted by Purdue University, this site offers users the benefit of a great deal of original research into the genes involved in the development of the fruit fly. Genes are organized three ways: alphabetically, by biochemical function, and by developmental function. Each gene's page begins with summary information and a...

View Resource Stem Cell Research and Applications: Monitoring the Frontiers of Biomedical Research

A report regarding human stem cell research was placed online in November 1999. From the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the Institute for Civil Society (ICS), this report explores the scientific and ethical issues involved in the use of embryonic stem (ES) cells and embryonic germ (EG) cells in medical research. While the report acknowledges the "varied social,...

View Resource First Complete Sequence of the Human Genome

On April 6, Celera Genomics announced that it had completed the sequencing phase of one person's genome. It will now begin the process of assembling the sequenced fragments into their proper order with the aid of powerful computers. Work on this project began in September 1999 using a method called "whole genome shotgun sequencing," a quicker method than that used by the international Human Genome...

View Resource Cancer Genome Anatomy Project

The National Cancer Institute has launched the Cancer Genome Anatomy Project to "achieve a comprehensive molecular characterization of normal, precancerous, and malignant cells." Sequenced genes are held as library entries in a database and are available for downloading (fasta format). Each cDNA library entry may include biological source, number of sequences, and library construction detail...

View Resource KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes, Release 4.0

Numerous genome sequencing projects for different organisms have produced catalogs of genes and related products. However, the functional application of this information is often not available or is not well organized. Led by Minour Kaneshia, the KEGG Project is an attempt to bridge the gap between the genes and their functional implications. This site contains a searchable database of...

View Resource Meiotic Double-Stranded Breaks on Chromosome III

The color graphics data for meiotic double-stranded breaks were provided in tabular and graphical form by Drs. Frederic Baudat and Alain Nicolas of the Institut Curie, Section de Recherche. The data are part of their published study, reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists, Volume 94, pages 5213-5218. A link to the original article (available in HTML or .pdf formats) is...

View Resource Science: Human Genome Special Issue

The week of 16 February 2001 scientists published a rough draft of the three billion letters of the human genetic code. Two complete sequences were actually released, one by a consortium of publicly funded laboratories and the other by a private venture, Celera Genomics. To mark this event, Science published the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium and the US National Human Genome...
