               Genomic Information for Eukaryotic Organisms

  euGenes provides a common summary of gene and genomic information
  for eukaryotic organisms. This includes
     Gene symbol, name, and synonyms
     Chromosome, genetic and molecular map information
     Gene product information (function, structure, and homologies)
     Links to extended gene information.

  The organisms covered are fruitfly, human, mouse, weed
  (Arabidopsis), worm (C. elegans), yeast and zebrafish.  This
  summary is automatically maintained from primary databases, along
  the lines of the GeneCards project.
  Some aspects of interest in euGenes include
    - an integrated search across organisms for genes of related
    - identified homologs or similar genes. BLAST summaries among all
      representative proteins of these genes are provided.
    - an easy-to-use genome map display for fully sequenced organisms,
      which lets you locate genes and other sequence features from
      chromosome to detailed region.  
  This is a beta-release of this summary database.
