NB. regexp doesn't cover Fugu or Drosophila IDs
Multiple database search tool (see other IDs)

Multiple ID formats from other databases (e.g. EMBL)

lack of ':' not a typo.

N.B. regexp is a bit of a guess; database connection timeout

more species available, not very practical to create full list at this stage

gene_ids are simple numbers; SNPs seem to link directly to dbSNP

Does not appear to have accession numbers

                                                     Page 10

Multiple ID formats from other databases (e.g. EMBL)

Gene symbols; generally quite free-form

Accessions available via Entrez

These accessions for GENES only

semi-free text

species-dependent; like SGD for S. cerevisiae; many species

not sure about the regexp

irritating registration for login

failed connection


links to Swiss-Prot entries

not sure about the RE

unsure which id is the accession

                                                Page 11


all over the place

Multiple species make for complex IDs
no seq db?

no seq db?

EST cluster IDs; presumably the clone ids originally come from somewhere else? tgzz34f05.r1, TgESTzz72h06.y1

Depends on whether C. elegans or C. briggsae; C. elegans IDs quite complex
