Acedb is an integrative database system that has been widely used for management of genome oriented biological data. Since 1990, it has been used to manage and display the results of many of the large genome projects, starting with that for the nematode C. elegans from which it derives its name: A C Elegans DataBase. Acedb has many features to manipulate genomic sequence and other high genetic data, but also a flexible design that accommodates novel data types and attributes, and has been used for many other types of information, including those unrelated to biology. It provides an integrated research tool that requires no programming by the user to produce sophisticated representations and displays of genomic data.
