The Information Engineering Branch (IEB) is responsible for designing and building NCBI's production software and databases. Since these resources constitute the bulk of what is seen on NCBI's Web pages or FTP site, the IEB has not previously maintained a separate Web page. However, it has become clear that there is a need for a public site, primarily for software developers or other interested groups. In addition to providing documentation and access to NCBI's software tools and libraries, this site will be used to announce early versions of new resources for people to comment on.
A set of maps are now available through the NCBI map viewer for 17 organisms. One can query for genes, contigs, change map display options and more.
