ANGIS - Australian National Genomic Information Service
ANGIS is a service available to subscribers
that offers a comprehensive system of software, databases, documentation,
training and support for biologists. Features of the ANGIS system include: Sequence analysis - Genome
analysis - Data collection and handling - Databases - Phylogenetic Inference
Bovine Genome Database
Offers a tool to follow the rapid bovine genome
mapping progress. Contains information on loci alleles genetic and physical maps
polymorphisms homologies (comparative mapping) probes primers and bibliographic
references. This information is presented in 5 different modules 1) BOVBASE an
ACeDB version of Bovmap; 2) an integrated cytogenetic and meiotic map of the
bovine genome presenting bovine mapping data by placing the different meiotic
maps side by side and next to a cytogenetic ideogram; 3) the European marker
manager (an account is required) set up in order to facilitate the information
exchange on markers isolated by the European BovMap group; 4) BOVMAP V2.3 (the
original database; an account is required) developed progressively since October
1992 under ORACLE with an Online C-Scape user interface; and 5) the BOVMAP
CGIL - Centre for Genetic Improvement of Livestock
CGIL is a research group affiliated
with the Department of Animal & Poultry Science, part of the Ontario Agricultural College,
at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Genetics research is done on numerous species of
animals including aquaculture, beef, dairy, poultry and swine.
The aims are:
to construct an integrated genetic and physical map of the chicken genome;
to provide a public genome database; to co-ordinate genome mapping activities in poultry.
The ultimate goal is to develop the tools and resources to map and identify
genes that control traits of agricultural and biological interest.
DOGS - Database of Genome Sizes
While gathering data for a lecture on sequence analysis
we became aware of the great interest in the research community for a comprehensive list of
(estimated) genome sizes for different organisms. The purpose of this database is to provide
such a list.
The ultimate goal is to compile a list of all the known
organisms and their respective genome sizes. Both the completed and estimated
genomes are listed. The estimated genome sizes are given for both the organisms
currently being sequenced and those for which no sequencing programme is in
EAAP-Animal Genetic Data Bank
The data bank monitors information on breeds and country populations
- of the farm animal species buffalo, cattle, goat, sheep, horse, ass, pig,
- in 46 EAAP member countries and other European countries
to keep watch on development, change and risk of extinction, to encourage
use and conservation of animal genetic diversity.
