Abstract ( is a web-accessible resource for investigating gene sequences from nematode genome. The database is an outgrowth of the parasitic nematode EST project at Washington University's Genome Sequencing Center (GSC), St Louis. A sister project at the University of Edinburgh and the Sanger Institute is also underway. More than 295 000 ESTs have been generated from >30 nematodes other than Caenorhabditis elegans including key parasites of humans, animals and plants. currently provides NemaGene EST cluster consensus sequence, enhanced online BLAST search tools, functional classifications of cluster sequences and comprehensive information concerning the ongoing generation of nematode genome data. The long-term goal of is to provide the scientific community with the highest quality sequence information and tools for studying these diverse species.
