COmplete GENome Tracking (COGENT): a flexible data environment for computational genomics

Bioinformatics. 2003 Jul 22;19(11):1451-2. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btg161.


Summary: We present a database of fully sequenced and published genomes to facilitate the re-distribution of data and ensure reproducibility of results in the field of computational genomics. For its design we have implemented an extremely simple yet powerful schema to allow linking of genome sequence data to other resources.
