"An international team has completed the most comprehensive map ever of the genetic code of the mouse, an accomplishment that will make the laboratory animal more useful to scientists studying human health and disease.

The map covers an estimated 98 percent of the order of the nearly 3 billion letters that make up the mouse code, or genome. Two efforts have nearly completed the deciphering of those letters, and the map will serve as an atlas of the genome and allow scientists to zero in on regions of interest. It will also permit scientists to fill in gaps that remain in the deciphering efforts, which remain in draft form."

"Centuries ago, maps were views of the world around us. Today, newly drawn maps are not of the exterior world, but of the world encapsulated by our genes, and the genes of other organisms that share our heritage going back millions, or even billions, of years.

That is why researchers will be poring over the publication this morning of a complete map of the genome of the mouse, the first mammal aside from man to have had all of its DNA sequenced."

"Genomic resources for the mouse are increasing at an astounding pace. The ability to manipulate the mouse genome coupled with the availability of genome sequence make the mouse a unique research tool. This page is a gateway to mouse resources in and beyond NCBI."

[requires 'free' registration]

"With the work on the human genome essentially complete, the National Institutes of Health and others said today that they would spend $58 million to decode the genome of the mouse by February.

While this may seem a large sum to drop on a mouse, experts regard the mouse genome as an invaluable guide for interpreting the human genome sequence that is now in hand.

The initiative represents a continuation of the tussle between the public consortium that decoded the human genome and its competitor, the Celera Corporation."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
