Dear SRS maintainers,
You can find current flat-file data for euGenes
files at ftp://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/eugenes/ See the tools/srs
folder for srs indexing files. Work remains to
be done to improve euGenes links to other databanks in SRS.
Genomic Information for Eukaryotic Organisms
euGenes provides a common summary of gene and genomic information
for eukaryotic organisms. This includes
Gene symbol, name, and synonyms
Chromosome, genetic and molecular map information
Gene product information (function, structure, and homologies)
Links to extended gene information.
The organisms covered are fruitfly, human, mouse, weed
(Arabidopsis), worm (C. elegans), yeast and zebrafish. This
summary is automatically maintained from primary databases, along
the lines of the GeneCards project.
Some aspects of interest in euGenes include
- an integrated search across organisms for genes of related
- identified homologs or similar genes. BLAST summaries among all
representative proteins of these genes are provided.
- an easy-to-use genome map display for fully sequenced organisms,
which lets you locate genes and other sequence features from
chromosome to detailed region.
This is a beta-release of this summary database.
Please send your comments and suggestions to improve this service
