Provides a single query interface to curated sequence and descriptive information about genetic loci.
MGD (Mouse Genome Database): www.informatics.jax.org
Comprehensive source of information on the experimental genetics of the laboratory mouse.
A collection of data on genes extracted from public databases. Includes assemblies of Unigene clusters and information on proteins.
MIPS Pedant Viewer: www.mips.biochem.mpg.de/proj/human/pedant/index.html
Functional and structural characterization of protein sequences.
The Mouse Atlas: www.loni.ucla.edu/MAP
The Mouse Atlas Project (MAP) aims to develop a dynamic, probabilistic atlas of the adult and developing C57BL/6J mouse. The framework, in the form of a digital atlas of the C57BL/6J mouse brain, is composed of volumes of data acquired from uMRI, blockface imaging, histology, and immunohistochemistry and a set of visualization, database, mapping and measurement tools. Users can import their own data into the atlas and use the same tools to visualize, compare and measure domains of gene expression in normal, gene-targeted knock-out, or transgenic mice.
National Centre for Biotechnology info.: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Provides integrated genomic information for biomedical researchers from around the world.
National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR): www.ncgr.org
Nonprofit organisation in Sante Fe, NM, providing information on ethics, gene therapy, social issues, public policy, and education. Offers free downloadable scientific software.
NIH GenBank Database: www.psc.edu/general/software/packages/genbank/genbank.html
The National Institute of Health's genetic sequence database is an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences.A new release is made every two months. GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, which is comprised of the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), and GenBank at the National Center for Biotechnology Information. These three organizations exchange data on a daily basis. Each GenBank entry includes a concise description of the sequence, the scientific name and taxonomy of the source organism, and a table of features that identifies coding regions and other sites of biological significance, such as transcription units, sites of mutations or modifications, and repeats. Protein translations for coding regions are included in the feature table. Bibliographic references are included along with a link to the Medline unique identifier for all published sequences.

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM):www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=OMIM
Catalogue of human genes and genetic disorders started by Dr. V. KcKusick. The database contains summary chronologic information, textual and reference information, pictures and links to MEDLINE articles and sequence information.
Hebrew University of Jerusalem provides global classification of the proteins into hierarchical clusters.
SNP Database: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/SNP
Provides information on Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms.
SOURCE (The Stanford Online Universal Resource for Clones and ESTs): genome-www5.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/SMD/source/sourcesearch
Compiles information from several publicly accessible databases, including UniGene, dbEST, Swiss-Prt, GeneMap99, RHdb, GeneCards and LocusLink.
Information about proteins - the sequence, notes about cellular functions, other useful data and links to related sites.
Transgenic/Targeted Mutation Database (TBASE): tbase.jax.org
TBASE is an attempt to organize information on transgenic animals and targeted mutations generated and analyzed worldwide. Please note that primary emphasis is placed on mouse knockouts.
An experimental system for automatically partitioning GenBank sequences into a non-redundant set of gene-oriented clusters
