[Show abstract][Hide abstract]ABSTRACT: The Zebrafish Information Network (ZFIN, http://zfin.org), the model organism database for zebrafish, provides the central location for curated zebrafish genetic, genomic and developmental
data. Extensive data integration of mutant phenotypes, genes, expression patterns, sequences, genetic markers, morpholinos,
map positions, publications and community resources facilitates the use of the zebrafish as a model for studying gene function,
development, behavior and disease. Access to ZFIN data is provided via web-based query forms and through bulk data files.
ZFIN is the definitive source for zebrafish gene and allele nomenclature, the zebrafish anatomical ontology (AO) and for zebrafish
gene ontology (GO) annotations. ZFIN plays an active role in the development of cross-species ontologies such as the phenotypic
quality ontology (PATO) and the gene ontology (GO). Recent enhancements to ZFIN include (i) a new home page and navigation
bar, (ii) expanded support for genotypes and phenotypes, (iii) comprehensive phenotype annotations based on anatomical, phenotypic
quality and gene ontologies, (iv) a BLAST server tightly integrated with the ZFIN database via ZFIN-specific datasets, (v)
a global site search and (vi) help with hands-on resources.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract]ABSTRACT: The Zebrafish Information Network (ZFIN; http://zfin.org) is a web based community resource that implements the curation of zebrafish genetic, genomic and developmental data. ZFIN provides an integrated representation of mutants, genes, genetic markers, mapping panels, publications and community resources such as meeting announcements and contact information. Recent enhancements to ZFIN include (i) comprehensive curation of gene expression data from the literature and from directly submitted data, (ii) increased support and annotation of the genome sequence, (iii) expanded use of ontologies to support curation and query forms, (iv) curation of morpholino data from the literature, and (v) increased versatility of gene pages, with new data types, links and analysis tools.
