View Resource The Jackson Laboratory: The Mouse Genome Sequence Project

Part of the Mouse Genome Informatics program (last reported on in the NSDL Scout Report for the Life Sciences on March 19, 2004) at the Jackson Laboratory, this website presents The Mouse Genome Sequence (MGS) project. MGS is designed "to integrate emerging mouse genomic sequence data with the genetic and biological data available in MGD and GXD." The site links to Eukaryotic Genome Annotation...
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 University of Montreal: Fungal Mitochondrial Genome Project

Supported by the Medical Research Council of Canada, the Fungal Mitochondrial Genome Project (FMGP) is a project of B. Franz Lang and his research group at the University of Montreal. Three "goals of FMGP are to (i) sequence complete mitochondrial genomes from all major fungal lineages, (ii) infer a robust fungal phylogeny, (iii) define the origin of fungi, their protistan ancestors, and their...
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 Broad Institute: Resources for the Scientific Community

From the Broad Institute--a research alliance of Harvard University, the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology--this website makes a variety of genomic resources publicly available to researchers. The site links to Genome Sequence Databases under the following categories: Fungal, Vertebrate Lineage, Bacterium, Mammalian, and Archaebacterium....
View Resource Consensus CoDing Sequence Database

The Consensus CoDing Sequence (CCDS) Database "project is a collaborative effort to identify a core set of human protein-coding regions that are consistently annotated and of high quality. The long-term goal is to support convergence toward a standard set of gene annotations on the human genome." CCDS project collaborators include the National Center for Biotechnology (NCBI), European...
View Resource Investigating a Eukaryotic Genome: Cloning and Sequencing a Fragment of Yeast DNA

Getting students into the laboratory early in their college careers is quite important, and science educators can use this helpful resource to do just that. Created by Professor Sarah Elgin at Washington University, this lab exercise and guide introduces students to the molecular biology techniques used to clone a gene. Over the course of this activity, students sequence a small fragment of the...
View Resource Genomics in Education

How do you get young people interested in the world of genomics? Well, for a start, you can take them on this interactive tour of the Genome Sequencing Center at Washington University. Created by a team of researchers at the Center, this site offers twelve different video clips, several supplemental videos, and a host of student activities. Visitors can get started by viewing the five different...
