The Mouse Genome Database (MGD) is a comprehensive community resource of mouse genetic and biological information populated both with data from published literature and with data electronically submitted from the research community. MGD stores genetic, physical and comparative mapping data, clones/probes/PCR information, and phenotype descriptions for genes, mutations and mouse strains. Supporting software for importation, analysis, display and distribution of mouse genetic data have been…

The Mouse Genome Database (MGD): a community resource. Status and enhancements. The Mouse Genome Informatics Group
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD) is a comprehensive community database that integrates genetic, genomic and phenotypic information about the laboratory mouse. MGD provides detailed information about
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD): genetic and genomic information about the laboratory mouse. The Mouse Genome Database Group
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD) focuses on the integration of mapping, homology, polymorphism and molecular data about the laboratory mouse and is linked to other public databases that focus on additional information such as expression patterns, sequences, bibliographic details and large mapping panel data.
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD): integration nexus for the laboratory mouse
The Mouse Genome Database is a key model organism for interpreting the human genome and for understanding human biology and disease and a recent focus on allele and phenotype representations enhances the ability of MGD to organize and present data for exploring the relationship between genotype and phenotype.
Informatics for mouse genetics and genome mapping.
The Mouse Genome Database in the United States is described, a primary resource for mouse genomic data, as well as resources at the Mammalian Genetics Unit in theUnited Kingdom and the Animal Genome database of Japan.
Orthology for comparative genomics in the mouse genome database
Current comparative data in MGD is described and the history and refinement of Orthology representation in this resource is reviewed, extending the use of orthology data to support the laboratory mouse as a model of human biology.
Electronic access to mouse tumor data: the Mouse Tumor Biology Database (MTB) project
The Mouse Tumor Biology (MTB) Database supports the use of the mouse as a model system of hereditary and induced cancers by providing electronic access to tumor names and classifications, and information on genetic factors associated with tumors and tumor development.
Bioinformatics: Databases and Systems
This paper presents a meta-modelling framework for modeling Heterogenous Data on the Nervous System using EBI, CORBA, and EBI Databases, as well as some examples of other models used in the field of bioinformatics.

Experience with existing biological databases indicates that it is possible to form useful queries across these databases, but that doing so usually requires expertise in the semantic structure of each source database.
Biological Database of Images and Genomes: tools for community annotations linking image and genomic information
A generic set of software tools, BioDIG, that allows linking of image data to genomic data and is introduced, which can be applied to a wide range of research problems that require linking images to genomes.


Building an integrated mouse genome database: a view from the front line
The authors review their experiences and attempt to relay some of the lessons learned, technical and otherwise, in their efforts to build the Mouse Genome Database (MGD).
Improvements to the GDB Human Genome Data Base
The most important of these are revised data representations for genes and genomic maps and a new curatorial model for the database, better suited for supporting cross-references to databases describing gene function, structure, products, expression and associated phenotypes.
The Genome Sequence DataBase (GSDB): meeting the challenge of genomic sequencing
The genome sequence database (GSDB) is a complete, publicly available relational database of DNA sequences and annotation maintained by the National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR) under a
The European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) databases
The databases and services of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) are described, which maintain and distributes the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database, Europe's primary nucleotide sequence data resource.
A database for mouse development.
An ongoing project between the Jackson Laboratory, the Medical Research Council, and the University of Edinburgh to establish a gene expression information resource for mouse development that would contain such information organized so that it can be readily queried.
