View Resource The Genomic Revolution

In honor of the one-year anniversary of the first working draft of the human genome, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) brings the Genomic Revolution to the Web. Divided into seven primary sections, which are further broken down into subsections (e.g., Gene Therapy, Nature and Nurture), the exhibit provides a good, basic introduction to the science of genetics. AMNH does attempt to...
View Resource UniGene

Created by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, UniGene is "an experimental system for automatically partitioning GenBank sequences into a non-redundant set of gene-oriented clusters." In addition to gene sequences, this Web site also offers thousands of novel expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences, a useful gene discovery resource. Organisms currently cataloged include human, rat,...
View Resource NCBI Trace Archive

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of the National Library of Medicine offers the Trace Archive -- "a repository of the raw sequence traces generated by large sequencing projects." The Trace Archive is the sole source of raw sequence data for projects that rely on a Whole Genome Shotgun strategy. Users can search the archive by BLAST or by a number of other query options. The...
View Resource Functional Genomics: News, Research and Resources on Genomics and Postgenomics

This site from Science magazine is designed as an entry point for scientists, researchers, and general users interested in genomics. Features include links to recent news, new and classic scholarly papers organized by topic, annotated links, biotech business resources, and Science's genome special issues. This well-designed and easy-to-use resource has potential for a wide range of users...
View Resource 50 Years of DNA

As 2003 marks the completion of the human genome sequence and the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA double helix, the Internet has exploded with noteworthy Web sites on the topic. The following represent just some of what the Web has to offer. The first site is the homepage of the National Human Genome Research Institute (1) -- a good place to start even if the content and presentation...
View Resource Nature Web Focus: Ocean Genomics

The August 28, 2003 issue of the journal Nature presented a collection of reports that, "along with other analysis of key components of the ocean's food web, highlights the significance of genome sequences from the sea." This Web Focus provides access to these reports free of charge to any reader. The reports focus particularly on marine phytoplankton. The site also includes links to related...
View Resource Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory: VISTA

A very comprehensive and well-organized offering from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, VISTA offers "suite of programs and databases for comparative analysis of genomic sequences. There are two ways of using VISTA - you can submit your own sequences and alignments for analysis (VISTA servers) or examine pre-computed whole-genome alignments of different species (VISTA browser)." The site also...
View Resource European Bioinformatics Institute: Research Groups

This website features the specialist research groups at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI). The EBI's research groups provide "biological data and utilities to aid the scientific community in the understanding of genomic and proteomic data." This site offers a variety of information about numerous research groups including the Computational Genomics Group, Sequence Database Group,...
View Resource Human Ageing Genomic Resources

The Human Ageing Genomic Resources (HAGR)—currently led by Dr. João Pedro de Magalhães at the Harvard Medical School—is "a collection of databases and tools designed to help researchers understand the genetics of human ageing.” Two major searchable resources offered in HAGR are AnAge, a curated animal ageing database with more than 2,000 species; and GenAge, “a curated database of genes related to...
View Resource Microarray Gene Expression Data Society

The Microarray Gene Expression Data Society is an international organization composed of computer scientists, data analysts, and biologists "that aims to facilitate the sharing of microarray data generated by functional genomics and proteomics experiments." Hosted by the European Bioinformatics Institute, this website connects to information about six major Data Society workgroups (e.g. the...
