WWW-AAnDB-1.0 is an experimental WWW interface to the data contained
in AAnDB-1.0 (implemented in ACeDB-3.0, the latest version of Richard
Durbin and Jean Thierry-Mieg's ACeDB) and is a prototype for a
database with datatypes useful in the study of Aspergillus nidulans
(and potentially other filamentous fungi).  It utilizes the elegant
ACeDB Server software (nph-acedb3) developed by Guy Decoux at
(decoux at moulon.inra.fr).  AAnDB-1.0 is a collaboration of Keck-IBT and
Tom Adams (Department of Biology, Texas A&M University) and Greg May
(Department of Cell Biology, Baylor College of Medicine).

WWW-ABtDB-1.0 is an experimental WWW interface to the data contained
in ABtDB-1.0, and is also implemented in ACeDB-3.0 and nph-acedb3.  It
also contains data for human homologs of bovine loci, with links
between species.  The data models provided in the Human Chromosome 21
ACeDB-3.0 by Otter Ritter and co. were a very useful starting point to
use for both new bovine Tags, as well as the addition of homolog
functionality.  ABtDB-1.0 is a collaboration of Keck- IBT and Jim
Womack (College of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University).

Both of these WWW-ACeDB servers are accessible via the WWW Server of
Keck-IBT.  This URL

will take you to the Keck-IBT HomePage -- clicking on the Keck-IBT
logo takes you to our 1st page of information.

The link

What's New on the Keck-IBT WWW Server

leads to an ever-changing page which serves as a running dialog of our
experimentation with this interface, and has links to both
WWW-AAnDB-1.0 and WWW-AAnDB-1.0, as well as to further information and
references about what is in the databases.  Also, Jeff Kirk
(jkirk at keck.tamu.edu) has put together a Tutorial on how these Servers
were set up, with pointers to where the components can be found.

Both WWW servers should be regarded as experimental prototypes -- they
do work, and we find them useful, but the data models are being
experimented with daily, and new data is always being added.  Finally,
neither db is anywhere near comprehensive in the data included, but is
illustrative of the datatypes that we routinely use in the study of
these organisms.

Any feedback is very welcome at:
