If you work on the slime mold Dictyostelium, check out this new Web portal for searching the roughly 8000 genes of this slithering soil-dweller and popular model for cell biology. Compiled from the three Dictyostelium sequencing centers by the San Diego Supercomputer Center, the annotated database allows you to search for proteins by name and to hunt for genes by attributes such as length and position. You can also export the results into the center's Biology WorkBench for further analysis.
