  • Online Mendelian Inheritance in Animals (OMIA)
    "...is a database of the genes and phenes* that have been documented in a wide range of animal species other than those for which databases already exist (human, rat and mouse). It is modelled on, and is complementary to, McKusick's Mendelian Inheritance in Man (MIM)."

CGSC: E.coli Genetic Stock Center
"The CGSC maintains a database of E.coli genetic information, including genotypes and reference information for the strains in the CGSC collection, gene names, properties, and linkage map, gene product information, and information on specific mutations."

ChemBank Initiative for Chemical Genetics

  • Small Molecule Bioactives Database
    "The ChemBank Small Molecule Bioactives Database is a subproject under the ChemBank umbrella and is being worked on primarily by Jeremy Muhlich, Erik Brauner, Jim Conley, and Caroline Shamu."

CroW 21 : Chromosome 21 Database at the Weizmann Institute
"...presents a user-friendly program to access integrated data related to human chromosome 21. CroW 21 is updated frequently and includes data on genes, pseudogenes, STSs and genomic sequences. The data is powered by the Unified Database with every entry linked to its individual GeneCard. We have on the agenda to link our source to the GESTALT workbench to extensively analyze the resulting."

Developmental Genome Anatomy Project (DGAP)
Objective: " To identify apparently balanced chromosomal rearrangements in patients with multiple congenital anomalies and then to use these chromosomal rearrangements to map and identify genes that are disrupted or dysregulated in critical stages of human development."

Entrez Popset
"A PopSet is a set of DNA sequences that have been collected to analyse the evolutionary relatedness of a population. The population could originate from different members of the same species, or from organisms from different species."

OMIM : Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man
"...OMIM is now incorporated into NCBI's Entrez system and can be queried using the same approach as the other Entrez databases such as PubMed and GenBank...This database is a catalog of human genes and genetic disorders authored and edited by Dr. Victor A. McKusick and his colleagues at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere, and developed for the World Wide Web by NCBI, the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The database contains textual information, pictures, and reference information. It also contains copious links to NCBI's Entrez database of MEDLINE articles and sequence information."
