We would really appreciate suggestions from biologist and
non-biologist about the way we've arranged things.
MGD is a database of microoganisms (~40,000) and other reproducible genetic
elements that are maintained in research oriented culture collections.
We're concentrating our efforts on collating data on microorganism used
in plant-related research and in agriculture.
We've include several citation indexes on biodiversity, nitrogen
fixation, biocontrol, microbial germplasm, and sustainable
agriculture. We're also linked to several other gopher's that are
relevant to maintainers of microbial germplasm (some more relevant
than others). Bionet newsgroups are also available.
We're still experimental, but we're adding data on almost a daily basis.
