View Resource A Human Mitochondrial Genome Database

The Center for Molecular Medicine at Emory University maintains this human mitochondrial genome database, which offers information on Mitochondrial DNA Function Locations and Polypeptide Assignments as well as the relevant publication references. The database is initially searchable by gene, disease, and enzyme. Users can then refine their search by function, polymorphisms, or references (author,...

View Resource TIGR Drosophila Gene Index

TIGR, The Institute for Genomic Research, has announced the release of the Drosophila Gene Index (DGI). The Drosophila Gene Index, which may be searched by Nucleotide or Protein Sequence, Identifier (TC, ET, EST, GB) Tissue, cDNA Library Name or cDNA Library Identifier(cat#), or Gene Product Name, contains some 50,500 total sequences (ET, EST, TC, and singletons). Data may be requested free of...

View Resource GeneCards

The Weizmann Institute of Science provides GeneCards, a database of "human genes, their products and their involvement in diseases." GeneCards contains concise information on the functions of "all human genes with an approved symbol" (e.g., genes named according to the Human Gene Nomenclature Committee), in addition to "selected others" -- collectively representing over 9,600 genes. The database...

View Resource probeBase

The Microbial Ecology Group of Munich's University of Technology has recently launched probeBase, "a comprehensive database containing published rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probe sequences, DNA microarray layouts and associated information." Users may search for sequences by target organism, which "can assist in the development of new rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes for fluorescence in situ...

View Resource Gramene: A Comparative Mapping Resource for Grains

Gramene is a "curated, open-source, Web-accessible data resource for comparative genome analysis in the grasses," funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. The searchable database, containing data derived from related public projects, may be queried with the rice genome browser, blast search, map search, or phenotype search, to name just a few. Gramene is frequently updated; recent...

View Resource Mouse Atlas Project

The past decade has seen a number of innovative mapping projects emerge, and some of these initiatives have also migrated to the web along the way. Recently, the Mouse Atlas Project (MAP) was released to great acclaim, and so far, a number of researchers have reported that they are tremendously satisfied with the results. Located at UCLA, the MAP is designed "to empower researchers with the...
