Title: GeneDB
Creator: Hertz-Fowler, Christiane; et al.
Publisher: Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
Abstract: Funded as part of the Wellcome Trust Functional Genomics Development Initiative, the GeneDB project is aiming to develop and maintain curated database resources for three organisms: Schizosaccharomyces pombe, which has been completely sequenced, and the kinetoplastid protozoa Leishmania major and Trypanosoma brucei, whose genome sequences have yet to be completed. The goals are to capture, store and manage data for integration with emerging functional genomics and proteomics projects and to provide an easy-to-use, user-friendly interface, including a variety of graphical displays. It is envisaged that the generic database structure will subsequently be adopted to integrate datasets for other organisms, both prokaryotic and eukaryotic, that have been sequenced by the Sanger Institute Pathogen Sequencing Unit. To this extend, datasets for Saccharomyces cerevisiae as well as the filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus are already available through GeneDB. The database has been developed through close collaboration between Sanger Institute software developers, on-site organism specific curators and representatives of the research communities. The data within geneDB are manually annotated and curated, frequently updated and, because of the structured annotation and use of controlled vocabulary, easy to precisely query. The database is under constant review and new functionality will be added as it evolves. [Information of the supplier]
