Part AACeDB Resources

ACeDB (a C. elegans database) has become the standard electronic mechanism for collection, linking, and display of data on C. elegans, as well as other organisms. The programmers make available by anonymous ftp the program source code; executable binaries for several common Unix, Macintosh, and Windows platforms; and raw data files. Updates to the data and program are published at these sites several times a year. The source code can be used to compile an executable system on computers for which precompiled binaries are not usually available.

The Web has made obtaining ACeDB documentation an easy task as well. Two major sites provide FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), detailed descriptions of program function and features, and E-mail addresses of people who can be contacted for help.

Finally, for the researcher who does not want to bother with setting up ACeDB on a local computer system, the data are available through ACeDB installations executable over the Web. Data access can be slow, depending on network traffic, but the data are available through these sites using only a limited-function network terminal.
