deprecated The Gene Index Project


General Information
This record was deprecated on Dec. 23, 2016 for the following reason(s): As of July 2014 the resource is no longer being maintained as funding ended in 2010.

The goal of The Gene Index Project is to use the available EST and gene sequences, along with the reference genomes wherever available, to provide an inventory of likely genes and their variants and to annotate these with information regarding the functional roles played by these genes and their products.
