                      An X chromosome YAC map
                       -  IXDB release 1.0  -

The X chromosome YAC map constructed at the ICRF Genome Analysis lab
(London) and later at the Max-Planck-Institut fr Molekulare Genetik
(Berlin) is now available. Approximately 125 Mb are covered (80 %) in 25
contigs, and include 906 YAC clones.  The data is stored and graphically
displayed in an acedb database (version 4.0) named IXDB release 1.0. To
facilitate the integration and comparison with other maps from the X
chromosome community, we have kept the same scale and banding pattern as
for the consensus map constructed at the last X chromosome workshop. 

To access the data, simply connect to
http://www.mpimg-berlin-dahlem.mpg.de/~xteam using a World Wide Web
browser.  Follow the instructions to first install the acedb program on
your local computer, and then download the X chromosome data from our

The database contains results from about 2000 hybridisations, 972 gel
fingerprints of Alu-PCR products and 172 FISH mapping experiments.  We
strongly encourage you to also download the X chromosome subset of the
Integrated Genome Database (IGD), fully compatible with our dataset.
will enable you to merge the experimental YAC mapping data with
information from GDB, OMIM, EMBL, RLDB, and other genome related
in a single step.
