Special Issue:
Model Organism Databases


This special issue of Genesis focuses on Model organism databases (MODs) and provides an overview of the contents and technologies these resources provide to the biomedical research community. Papers in this special issue cover a broad range of issues regarding MODs, everything from user guides to sophisticated data querying interfaces aimed at guiding MOD users to leverage MOD content better to discussions that explain how data are gathered and validated.

CRISPr/Cas (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-assiciated) technologies can be employed to induce targeted genetic mutation. In back-to-back articles published in genesis, Blitz et al. and Nakayama et al. each report CRISPr/Cas targeted transgenesis of Xenopus tropicalis pigmentation and eye development genes.
