Alliance of Genome Resources – Survey

July 21, 2016

An Alliance of Genome Resources has been formed to provide better support for the biological sciences.

Please help the Alliance by completing the short survey at:

Six of the founding members of the Alliance of Genome Resources (Saccharomyces Genome Database, WormBase, FlyBase, ZFIN, MGI, and the Gene Ontology Consortium) attended the GSA’s The Allied Genetics Conference in Orlando from July 13-17. It was a great opportunity for staff of each of these individual resources to talk about their new collaboration to integrate their content and software into a single resource that benefits biologists, educators, and clinicians alike.

The model organism databases all have a long history of reaching out to their respective communities for feedback on new developments and input on future directions. Carrying on this tradition, the Alliance has created a short survey to obtain feedback on how best to provide human disease information in relation to model organisms. In addition, the Alliance is asking for input on the prioritization of website visualizations, tools, and curation of specific data types.

We appreciate your continued support!
