INFOBIOGEN announces the annual update of the "DBCAT", the public catalog of
the data banks for the genetics and molecular biology.

In this field how much data banks are available on Internet ?
500, 1000, more? To tell the truth, we don't know ...

The DBCAT contains :

        - more than 300 original descriptions, from at least 23 countries

        -  more than 43 organisms
        -  40 databanks about human
        -  24 databanks about mutations
        -   7 databanks about drosophila
        -   8 databanks about Escherichia Coli
        -  17 databanks about Chromosomes
        -  20 different genomes (organelle, Saccharomyces, Arabidopsis,
           rat, mouse, rice, human...)

46% of the databases have already been checked by the authors/curators.
