The National Institutes of Health Xenopus Initiative is a concerted effort to interact with the Xenopus research community to identify the community's needs; to devise strategies to meet those needs; and to support, oversee, and coordinate the resulting projects. This chapter provides a brief description of several genetic and genomic resources generated by this initiative and explains how to access them. The resources described in this chapter are (1) complementary deoxyribonucleic acid (cDNA) libraries and expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences; (2) UniGene clusters; (3) full-insert cDNA sequences; (4) a genetic map; (5) genomic libraries; (6) a physical map; (7) genome sequence; (8) microarrays; (9) mutagenesis and phenotyping; and (10) bioinformatics. The descriptions presented here were based on data that were available at the time of manuscript submission. Because these are ongoing projects, they are constantly generating new data and analyses. The Web sites cited in each subheading present current data and analyses.
