The Integrated Genome Database (IGD) aims to integrate as much human
genome data as possible and graphically display it using Durbin &
Thierry-Mieg's ACeDB program. 

We have the preliminary version (IGD-FRED-ACE) set up on our system. 
The whole IGD system is still in the developmental phase, but it is
still very impressive. 

The IGD-FRED-ACE is the front-end database of the IGD.  The whole IGD
system is still in the developmental phase, and consequently the data is
not complete.  The current data held, as of June 26, 1992 is:
