HINXTON, UK--The Sanger Centre made available on its web site, http://genomic.sanger.ac.uk/, a new database of predicted genes and protein sequences called INFOGENEP. The database includes genes predicted for Sanger finished and unfinished sequences and contains about 1,500 loci and 18,000 protein sequences corresponding to predicted genes. Known protein and EST similarity information is included in the database, and the center said that Blast searches will soon be installed and sequences of other centers will be processed. All predicted genes and proteins for the human genome draft as well as genes and proteins predicted for other model organisms will be included, according to the center.
