Studying the function of genes is a multidimensional process that involves many organisms and a large variety of experimental approaches. No single organism is best suited for all experiments, and no single experimental strategy is appropriate for all genes. In the end, integrated electronic resources with data collected from all genes in yeast, flies, worms, mice, zebra fish, rats, and human will best serve the needs of the biomedical research community to study gene function.
