Dear Colleagues: Please be aware that the results of the public genome
analysis effort, including human and mouse genomic sequence, cDNA
sequences, ESTs, SNPs, genetic maps, and clone-based physical maps,
are freely and
readily available to all scientists.  A compendium of many relevant
URLs can be found at The Genome Hub

A great deal of annotated information has been laid onto the draft
human sequence through several major genome-wide annotation efforts,
including those at NCBI

http://www.ensembl.org <http://www.ensembl.org

and UC Santa Cruz

These assembled views of the human sequence are generally a preferable
place to look, rather
than the original unassembled accessions in the HTGS division of
GenBank. All data are available for downloading and all users may
search the data on
a genome-wide or chromosome-specific basis to find genes, SNPs, mouse
genome matches, and other features.  The sequence annotations also
include information about proteins and protein families.  Information
available in
the free public databases includes sequence, map, protein, expression,
and variation data.

The most recent large data set that has been added to the public
databases is three-fold whole genome shotgun coverage of the mouse
genome, including the electrophoretic traces.  The mouse data can be
searched by gene, contig, or clone identifier and users can BLAST
search the mouse with peptide predictions, cDNAs, and genomic DNA.
Access to the mouse data can be
obtained through NCBI

and ensemble
