WormBook in GENETICS

From Iva Greenwald:
Three years ago, I announced in this column the creation of WormBook in GENETICS, thanks to a generous funding commitment to our community by the Genetics Society of America.

Please look at what we’ve done so far and you’ll see what a great resource it is:  http://www.genetics.org/content/wormbook

We are really hitting our stride now, and you will see WormBase announcements of new chapters increasing apace.  The more you demonstrate the value of WormBook through viewing, downloading, and especially, citing the articles, the more the GSA will understand the value of their sponsorship and be inclined to continue it.

Thanks very much!


Check out the Eukaryotic Genomic Databases book!

The Eukaryotic Genomic Databases book has just been released by Springer (Editors: Kollmar, Martin) and contains detailed chapters related to the eukaryotic databases such as WormBase, FlyBase, the yeast databases, SGD and PomBase, etc. The chapters describe database contents and classic use-cases, which assist in accessing eukaryotic genomic data and encouraging comparative genomic research.
