1) LabOnWeb.com

The fresh new site LabOnWeb.com, by Compugen, is now providing a three-tiered report on expressed sequences: Genes are elongated, analyzed for expression patterns, and queried for putative function. This is a very useful service not only for those of us who run experiments and end up having many 'candidates', but also for any molecular biologist evaluating genes - this one-stop analysis gives about everything one can learn from the sequence alone.
First, there is 'I-RACE' - the sequence is elongated based on the LEADS databases that Compugen has been developing since 1998. A combination of public and private domain EST and mRNA data, LEADS now represents over 70,000 unique genes. A query sequence is elongated according to the best available transcript in LEADS.
Next, the expression pattern of the sequence is analyzed using SAGE - the popular method to quantify mRNA presence in libraries, based on the 3' end. Even short ESTs or incomplete sequences may have SAGE tags, and tell you allot about the possible tissues where your candidate is expressed.
Then, the elongated sequence is compared for homology in a very nice and useful page, which includes comparisons all major protein, DNA, and domain databases, all neatly organized into a split-screen format with clear graphic designation of 'significance'.
Last, a summary page is presented - giving you all these results, numbers, and graphs as one clear text summary of your query. Sometimes this is all you may need...
Additional services, such a ORF prediction, primer design, and proprietary SAGE libraries, complete the picture of a useful, highly focused site. Currently every new user can enjoy up to 6 free searches.
For more information, you may see the
demo, but it is best - for additional information or in order to submit your own sequence - just to go to www.labonweb.com . To use the site just press "Join" and follow the instructions.

2) Human Gene Expression Index (HuGE Index)

Human Gene Expression Index (HuGE Index) aims to provide a comprehensive database to understand the expression of human genes in normal human tissues. Currently, RNA expression of more than 6000 genes is obtained using high-density oligonucleotide array technology and has been created for public access.
http://www.geneindex.org/ - http://hum-molgen.de/bb/Forum5/HTML/000015.html >

3) OMIM Morbid Map

The OMIM Morbid Map, a catalog of genetic diseases and their cytogenetic map locations arranged
alphabetically by disease, is now available.
http://www3.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Omim/searchmorbid.html - http://hum-molgen.de/bb/Forum5/HTML/000014.html >

4) Image Archive on the American Eugenics Movement

The Archive includes original documents and photographs of the Eugenics movement from the early
decades of the 20th century.
Brief essays and captions provide context to aid understanding of the historical, social, political, and
ethical issues of the time.

5) PubMed Central

FREE full text can now be viewed in PubMed Central, both as HTML through your web browser and as downloadable PDFs. Features include: links from article reference citations to PubMed abstracts, figures sized for on-screen viewing, and support for supplementary information such as data tables, streaming video, and high-resolution images.
http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/ - http://hum-molgen.de/bb/Forum5/HTML/000011.html >

6) The Multi-Dimensional Human Embryo

is a collaboration funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to produce and make available over the internet a three-dimensional image reference of the Human Embryo based on magnetic resonance imaging. The collection of images is intended to serve students, researchers, clinicians, and the general public interested in studying and teaching human development.

7) Familial Cancer Database: free software

The first official version of the Familial Cancer Database (FaCD) has now been released in support of the UICC Familial Cancer and Prevention Project and can be downloaded after free registration at
FaCD is a stand-alone Windows based computer program which may help clinicians/genetic counsellors in diagnosing hereditary cancer. It tries to match the phenotype of a cancer patient/family with the profiles of the more than 300 cancer associated familial and hereditary disorders stored in the FaCD database. FaCD is aimed at health care professionals with at least a basic knowledge of clinical cancer genetics.
