Abstract

The wealth of databases containing genomic information and the easy access via the internet can be an invaluable tool in performing genetic studies and identifying important sequences. This article provides an overview and specific methods for using these resources in both positional cloning and identifying candidate genes for diseases and phenotypes. The ability to apply information across the mouse and human species is stressed. Useful internet sites and their contents are identified and described, and some understanding of their current limitations is provided. As additional genomic definition accelerates, the use of these tools will become more essential in cutting edge research linking sequence and function in whole mammalian organisms.
