Content

The Genome Database (GDB) is the official central repository for mapping data from the International Human Genome Initiative. The data available are of three types: genomic segments (including genes, expressed sequence tags - ESTs and contigs); cytogenetic, contig, and other types of map; and polymorphism information. All these data are integrated and can be searched in a variety of ways, from chromosome location to protein name. Links to external resources, such as SWISS-PROT and the Mouse Genome Database at the Mouse genome informatics site, are provided where appropriate.

Reporter's comments

Timeliness

The site is regularly updated when new data become available.

Best feature

This very comprehensive set of data is integrated well with external resources. The help pages are also very useful.

Worst feature

Some of the displays require a Java-compatible browser, although the data can be viewed in a simpler format if preferred.
