Abstract

Recent enhancements and current research in the GeneCards (GC) (http://bioinfo.weizmann.ac.il/cards/) project are described, including the addition of gene expression profiles and integrated gene locations. Also highlighted are the contributions of specialized associated human gene-centric databases developed at the Weizmann Institute. These include the Unified Database (UDB) (http://bioinfo.weizmann.ac.il/udb) for human genome mapping, the human Chromosome 21 database at the Weizmann Insti-tute (CroW 21) (http:// bioinfo.weizmann.ac.il/crow21), and the Human Olfactory Receptor Data Explora-torium (HORDE) (http://bioinfo.weizmann.ac.il/HORDE). The synergistic relationships amongst these efforts have positively impacted the quality, quantity and usefulness of the GeneCards gene compendium.
