Abstract

We have built a relational database of zebrafish developmental and genetic research information accessible via the World Wide Web. Our team of biologists and computer scientists employed a user centered design process, using input from the research community to tailor the contents and usability of the database. The database supports the broad range of data types generated by zebrafish research including text, images and graphical information about mutations, gene expression patterns and the genetic map. Data are entered both by the database staff and directly by authorized users. The database also maintains links among data, scientists and laboratories, thus facilitating information exchange within the research community.
