Bioinformatics has become an essential part of biological research. The rapid pace of technology development and the ability to carry out biological experimentation in large scale require computerized systems for data management, analysis, and display. Experimentation with the mouse, a major model organism of the Human Genome Initiative, has intensified the need for bioinformatics tools for mouse mapping and genome analysis. This article describes the Mouse Genome Database in the United States, a primary resource for mouse genomic data, as well as resources at the Mammalian Genetics Unit in the United Kingdom and the Animal Genome Database of Japan. Internet addresses are provided for major genetic and physical mapping resources, major genome data sites, and resources of molecular information.
