Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the availability of two new services for animal
genome database(http://ws4.niai.affrc.go.jp).

(1) Gene-map Homology Search

        URL  http://ws4.niai.affrc.go.jp/dbsearch2/homology/

   If the mapping information of a given gene is not found in other
species, genes which are cytogeneticaly close to the given gene and
occur in other species are searched in the MGD linkage map. When such
genes are found, the cytogenetic position of the genes are displayed to
provide a possible location of the given gene on chromosomes. 

(2) Cytogenetic Correspondence in the Linkage Map

        URL   http://ws4.niai.affrc.go.jp/dbsearch2/java/mhomo/

   It is helpful in the identification of genes responsible for traits
to obtain information about cytogenetic correspondence in the linkage
map between species. Therefore, the Java applet to survey cytogenetic
correspondences in the linkage map between mouse and human, pig, cattle
and rat was developed in this system. 



Happy networking !
