  1. GeneDB (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Curated database for various Sanger-sequenced genomes
    Resource Category : Databases -> Genomic Databases (Non-Human) -> Prokaryotic Genome Databases - General

    Brief Description : GeneDB (http://www.genedb.org/) is a genome database, housing sequence and annotation from a diverse range of organisms. The resource aims to provide intuitive access to data generated by the WTSI Pathogen Sequencing Unit (http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Projects/Pathogens/) and its collaborators. Over the past year, the number and range of organisms in GeneDB has continued to increase, now totalling 33 datasets, including representatives from two new taxa - viruses and parasitic helminths. In addition, GeneDB is designed to store data from both initial shotgun projects with automated annotation through to completed genomes. Four of the organism datasets, (S. pombe, P. falciparum, T. brucei and L. major), are being actively curated with weekly updates to sequence and annotation. As many of the datasets in GeneDB are from organisms that cause devastating diseases in the developing world, a stand alone version of GeneDB has been produced for CD distribution of a sub-set of the data. The CD supports all the core searching and display functions of the site and is particularly aimed at increasing access for researchers in endemic countries. (A Tri-tryp CD is freely available via http://www.who.int/tdr/media/multimedia/trypanosomatids.htm ).
