Model organisms are widely used for understanding basic biology, and have significantly contributed to the study of human disease. In recent years, genomic analysis has provided extensive evidence of widespread conservation of gene sequence and function amongst eukaryotes, allowing insights from model organisms to help decipher gene function in a wider range of species. The InterMOD consortium is developing an infrastructure based around the InterMine data warehouse system to integrate genomic… 
Cross‐organism analysis using InterMine
TLDR
How InterMine databases have been developed for the major model organisms, budding yeast, nematode worm, fruit fly, zebrafish, mouse, and rat together with a newly developed human database is described to facilitate interoperation and development of cross‐organism analysis tools and reports.
Semantic Research Platform for Model Organisms
TLDR
If these gold-standard data alongside other MOD data could be provisioned as FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable), then scientists could leverage a greater amount of interoperable data in knowledge discovery.
Understanding the Systems Biology of Pathogen Virulence Using Semantic Methodologies
TLDR
This paper describes how a systems biology analysis of virulence in the apicomplexan pathogen Toxoplasma gondii, a common parasite that infects up to half the worlds population, with acute pathogenic risks for immuno-compromised individuals or pregnant mothers, is facilitated using the InterMine data warehouse platform.
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD): facilitating mouse as a model for human biology and disease
TLDR
A new addition to MGD, the Human–Mouse: Disease Connection, allows users to explore gene–phenotype–disease relationships between human and mouse, and MGD has also updated search paradigms for phenotypic allele attributes, incorporated incidental mutation data, added a module for display and exploration of genes and microRNA interactions and adopted the JBrowse genome browser.
Mouse Genome Database: From sequence to phenotypes and disease models
TLDR
The data acquisition process, specifics about MGD's key data areas, methods to access and query MGD data, and outreach and user help facilities are described.
Bovine Genome Database: new tools for gleaning function from the Bos taurus genome
TLDR
BovineMine, based on the InterMine data warehousing system, is developed, to integrate the bovine genome, annotation, QTL, SNP and expression data with external sources of orthology, gene ontology, Gene interaction and pathway information.
ZFIN Database Information
  • Biology
  • 2019
TLDR
The primary mission of the omyces Genome Database Gene Ontology Consortium Alliance of Genome Resources Alliance is to develop and maintain sustainable genome information resources that facilitate the use of diverse model organisms in understanding the genetic and genomic basis of human biology, health and disease.
Hymenoptera Genome Database: integrating genome annotations in HymenopteraMine
TLDR
An update of the HGD, a model organism database for insect species of the order Hymenoptera (ants, bees and wasps), which maintains genomic data for 9 bee species, 10 ant species and 1 wasp, including the versions of genome and annotation data sets published by the genome sequencing consortiums and those provided by NCBI.
metabolicMine: an integrated genomics, genetics and proteomics data warehouse for common metabolic disease research
TLDR
This work presents metabolicMine, a data warehouse with a specific focus on the genomics, genetics and proteomics of common metabolic diseases, developed in collaboration with leading UK metabolic disease groups and freely available online.
WormBase 2017: molting into a new stage
TLDR
WormBase, with five other Model Organism Databases and The Gene Ontology project, have begun to collaborate formally as the Alliance of Genome Resources, to better serve the broader research community.

KEGG for linking genomes to life and the environment
TLDR
KEGG PATHWAY is now supplemented with a new global map of metabolic pathways, which is essentially a combined map of about 120 existing pathway maps, and the KEGG resource is being expanded to suit the needs for practical applications.
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD): comprehensive resource for genetics and genomics of the laboratory mouse
TLDR
Improvements to MGD include expanded genome feature classifications, inclusion of new mutant allele sets and phenotype associations and extensions of GO to include new relationships and a new stream of annotations via phylogenetic-based approaches.
modMine: flexible access to modENCODE data
TLDR
The modMine database (http://intermine.modencode.org) described here has been built by the modENCODE Data Coordination Center to allow the broader research community to search for and download data sets of interest among the thousands generated by modENCode.
Gene Ontology: tool for the unification of biology
TLDR
The goal of the Gene Ontology Consortium is to produce a dynamic, controlled vocabulary that can be applied to all eukaryotes even as knowledge of gene and protein roles in cells is accumulating and changing.
OrthoDB: the hierarchical catalog of eukaryotic orthologs in 2011
TLDR
The updated OrthoDB catalog of eukaryotic orthologs delineated at each radiation of the species phylogeny in an explicitly hierarchical manner of over 100 species of vertebrates, arthropods and fungi is presented.
The Rat Genome Database Pathway Portal
TLDR
The Pathway Portal resources at RGD are presented, and future directions are discussed.
The Mammalian Phenotype Ontology as a unifying standard for experimental and high-throughput phenotyping data
TLDR
The Mammalian Phenotype Ontology is a structured vocabulary for describing mammalian phenotypes and serves as a critical tool for efficient annotation and comprehensive retrieval of phenotype data, providing a standard underpinning to mouse phenotype descriptions for existing and future experimental and large-scale phenotyping projects.
WormBase
TLDR
WormBase’s role of genome sequence annotation is described, describing how it annotate and integrate data from a growing collection of nematode species and strains, and the impact on annotation quality of large functional genomics projects such as modENCODE is discussed.
Reactome: a database of reactions, pathways and biological processes
TLDR
A new web site with improved tools for pathway browsing and data analysis is developed, and orthology-based inferences of pathways in non-human species are made, applying Ensembl Compara to identify orthologs of curated human proteins in each of 20 other species.
OrthoDB: the hierarchical catalog of eukaryotic orthologs
TLDR
A COG-like and Inparanoid-like ortholog delineation procedure on the basis of all-against-all Smith-Waterman sequence comparisons is used to analyze 58 eukaryotic genomes, focusing on vertebrates, insects and fungi to facilitate further comparative studies.
