euGenes is a genome information system that provides a
common summary of genes and genomes of eukaryotes.
Recent additions (Jan-Feb 2001):
- maps of Human genome (GoldenPath public draft dataset)
- Gene Ontology standard vocabulary for gene functions, biological processes and cell locations
- 7 popular organisms: human, fruitfly, worm, mouse, yeast, mustard weed, zebrafish
- primary information on all known protein coding genes of these genomes
- flexible, usable whole-genome map display with feature annotations, chromosome locations and molecular data integration
- consistant gene symbols, identifiers, and known synonyms
- gene homologies (BLAST) to find commonality among organisms
- standard vocabulary of molecular function, process and cell location (Gene Ontology) is integrated into gene search and browsing.
Under the hood:
- quick, efficient search, retrieval and display methods
- up-to-date information drawn from several primary public sources
- integrates diverse genome data into common format
- extends FlyBase genome information system technology to several genomes
- compares favorably to other genome information systems for content, comprehensiveness and usability.
