FlyBase announces two new postings on its servers.
The Interactive Fly:
In the Allied Data section of FlyBase, The Interactive Fly, developed
and maintained by Tom and Judy Brody, provides overviews of various
developmental and cellular processes, with the foundation information
coming from Drosophila but with considerable integration of information
from vertebrate systems as well. According to the Brody's, it has been
developed to make the Drosophila world more accessible to the
non-specialist. In addition to the overviews, the Brody's maintain
gene records with links to FlyBase, and maintain lists of genes that
participate in the developmental and cellular processes that are
Interactive Fly Hierarchy: cross-index to FlyBase genes
FlyBase has developed a hierarchical view of The Interactive Fly. This
hierarchy is accessible in two FlyBase directories: Allied Data and
Genes. The hierarchy provides an overview of the Interactive Fly with
links to the specific Interactive Fly pages, as well as gene lists with
links to the individual gene records in both FlyBase and the
Interactive Fly. This hierarchy permits searches for genes grouped
according to developmental and cellular pathways and functions.
