Here's a well-illustrated and oriented Web Site for Genomic Research. It
provides a new twist on what is available on the internet, in that, a brief
history and scientists involved in the research, are provided. Students will be
inspired by this site to get more involved in genomic research and learn much
through the graphic presentations.

This site provides access to information about a variety of genome projects
including the 32 completed microbial genomes, rice, Arabidopsis, and potato. Dataon
the microbial genomes that were sequenced by TIGR is organized in a user
friendly fashion. Clicking on the organism name, links to background information
on the bacterium. The database of sequence information is divided into several
parts. The gene identification table and the RNA tables use categories of
cellular roles published in 1993. DNA molecule information is also avialable.
The genome data can be searched by gene name, coding locus, and sequence. It can
also be downloaded.
