Abstract

The FlyBase Drosophila genetics database and the public interfaces of the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project (BDGP) and European Drosophila Genome Project (EDGP) are in the process of integrating. At present, the data of these projects are available from independent, but hyperlinked, WWW sites (FlyBase URL, http://flybase. bio.indiana.edu/; BDGP URL, http://fruitfly.berkeley.edu/; EDGP URL, http://edgp.ebi.ac.uk/ ). Because of the considerable overlap of data classes between the contributions of the Drosophila genome projects and the Drosophila community, the new and enlarged FlyBase consortium views the implementation of a single integrated Drosophila genomics/genetics server as essential to the scientific community. This integration will occur in a stepwise fashion over the next 1-2 years. In this report, the salient features of the current databases and how to interrogate and navigate the extensive data sets are discussed.
