         ANNOUNCING      euGenes     update July 2002
         Genomic Information for Eukaryotic Organisms

   euGenes is a genome information system that provides a
   common summary of genes and genomes of eukaryotes.
   It summarizes 8 eukaryote genomes, over 180,000 genes
   and 850,000 features on 3.7 gigabases of genomic sequence.

   Recent additions include
   > Mosquito genome
   > Updates to genome sequences, features and maps, reference
     proteins, and gene homologies
   > BioDAS genome annotation access
   > Light-weight Directory access (LDAP) for Grid computing

   Highlights of the project include
   * 8 eukaryote genomes: human, fruitfly, worm, mouse, yeast,
     mustard weed, zebrafish, mosquito
   * primary information on all known protein coding genes in these
   * whole-genome maps with feature annotations, chromosome
     locations and molecular data
   * consistant gene symbols, identifiers, and known synonyms
   * homologies link common genes among these organisms
   * common vocabulary of molecular function, process and cell
     location (Gene Ontology)
