DictyMOLD-a Dictyostelium discoideum genome browser database

Bioinformatics. 2005 Mar 1;21(5):696-7. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bti250. Epub 2005 Jan 28.


With the Dictyostelium Genome Project nearing completion, we initiated the construction of a data repository for all Dictyostelium discoideum genomic data. Up to now this database, called DictyMOLD (Dicty Map Of Linked Data), incorporates the recently completed D.discoideum chromosomes 1 and 2 sequences together with related annotations. To visualise maps, sequences and annotations and to provide access for the scientific community a perl-based browser was developed.

Availability: The DictyMOLD database is freely accessible via http://genome.imb-jena.de/dictyostelium/
