EpoDB is a database intended for the study of gene expression during differentiation and development of vertebrate erythropoietic lineages. It currently contains 1442 Genbank entries (663 are globin and 779 non-globin) which have been augmented manually and computationally. Each entry was analyzed by an expert system that corrects errors in GenBank features and generates a uniformly annotated set of features. Gene names and gene, family names were manually added. Beyond the standard database… 


Serial Analysis of Gene Expression
Serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) should provide a broadly applicable means for the quantitative cataloging and comparison of expressed genes in a variety of normal, developmental, and disease states.
Knowledge Discovery in GENBANK
The parse tree is transformed into an augmented FEATURE TABLE that represents inferred gene structure explicitly and unambiguously, thereby greatly improving the utility of the FEATURES TABLE to researchers.
Gene structure prediction by linguistic methods.
A grammar and parser for eukaryotic protein-encoding genes is described, which by some measures is as effective as current connectionist and combinatorial algorithms in predicting gene structures for sequence database entries.
QGB: A System for Querying Sequence Database Fields and Features
A general system for performing complex queries on the information in the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank databases, including queries over the structural features of sequences implied in the FEATURE TABLE, with ability to deduce missing features and infer relationships among features as a consequence of constructing a parse tree of sequence structure from information described in theFEATURE TABLE.
Quantitative Monitoring of Gene Expression Patterns with a Complementary DNA Microarray
A high-capacity system was developed to monitor the expression of many genes in parallel by means of simultaneous, two-color fluorescence hybridization, which enabled detection of rare transcripts in probe mixtures derived from 2 micrograms of total cellular messenger RNA.
