             Genomic Information for Eukaryotic Organisms

         euGenes is a genome information system that provides a
           common summary of genes and genomes of eukaryotes.

  Recent additions (Jan-Feb 2001):
     + maps of Human genome (GoldenPath public draft dataset)
     + Gene Ontology standard vocabulary for gene functions,
       biological processes and cell locations

  Highlights:
     + 7 popular organisms: human, fruitfly, worm, mouse, yeast,
       mustard weed, zebrafish
     + primary information on all known protein coding genes of
       these genomes
     + flexible, usable whole-genome map display with feature
       annotations, chromosome locations and molecular data
       integration
     + consistant gene symbols, identifiers, and known synonyms
     + gene homologies (BLAST) to find commonality among organisms
     + standard vocabulary of molecular function, process and cell
       location (Gene Ontology) is integrated into gene search and
       browsing.

  Under the hood:
     + quick, efficient search, retrieval and display methods
     + up-to-date information drawn from several primary public
       sources
     + integrates diverse genome data into common format
     + extends FlyBase genome information system technology to
       several genomes
     + compares favorably to other genome information systems for
       content, comprehensiveness and usability.
