GOLD: Genomes Online Database, is a World Wide Web resource for comprehensive access to information regarding complete and ongoing genome projects around the world.
GOLD provides the largest available and most detailed monitoring of genome sequencing projects.
GOLD is Sponsored by Integrated Genomics Inc.
Founded in late 1997, Integrated Genomics developed ERGOTM, the Company's proprietary software and bioinformatics database suite, integrating functional genomic data from the company's high throughput DNA sequencing, metabolic reconstruction, expression profiling and biochemical and microbiological laboratories with publically available sequence information.
Building upon one of the most comprehensive genomic databases (containing over 160 complete sequences) and using the Company's proprietary algorithms, ERGOTM assigns functions to both private and publicly available databases, and, in the process, identifies previously unknown or mischaracterized genes and gene products that can serve as targets for drug development.
Developed initially in prokaryotes, ERGOTM provides better and faster identification of gene function across all organisms, including man
