We Recommend... Model Organism Resources
This section provides links to outstanding model organism resources and genome databases. Some model organisms, such as Drosophila, are pushing the envelope in developing useful online resources for researchers.
Arabidopsis thaliana Database (Stanford University) provides genomic and biological information, sequence analysis tools, protocols, conferences, Arabidopsis labs and links.
Caenorhabditis elegans WWW Server provides general nematode information, methods, researchers and links to genomic resources.
The CMS-SDSC Molecular Biology Resource has an excellent list of Organism-Specific Genome Databases.
Dictyostelium WWW Server (Northwestern University) presents Dicty newsletters, researchers, lab home pages and research information.
The E. coli Index (University of Birmingham) is an extensive link collection to E. coli genome databases, researchers, journals, protocols and professional societies.
The Fish Net (University of Oregon) provides easy access to Zebrafish anatomic and genomic information, researchers and the Zebrafish Information Network.
FishScope (Cooper Lab, University of Washington) contains time-lapse recordings and confocal images of zebrafish epidermal cells and developing embryos.
FlyBase is a comprehensive database of the Drosophila genome that is integrated with the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project.
Flybrain (University of Arizona) is an anatomic atlas and database of the Drosophila nervous system.
Mouse Genome Informatics (The Jackson Laboratory) provides biological, genetic and gene expression information for the laboratory mouse.
Saccharomyces Genome Database (Stanford University) provides genetic information, sequence analysis tools, structural data, mammalian homologies, yeast researchers and links.
The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) site contains the Microbial Database and the TIGR Human Gene Index and includes updates on sequencing projects.
The Xenopus Molecular Marker Resource (Vize lab, University of Texas, Austin) is a collection of wholemount staining patterns of Xenopus. The searchable site contains an enormous amonut of information.
