Database Description

FlyBase is an integrated resource for genetic, molecular, and descriptive data concerning the Drosophilidae, including interactive genomic maps, gene product descriptions, mutant allele phenotypes, genetic interactions, expression patterns, transgenic constructs and their insertions, anatomy and images, and genetic stock collections. Data are captured from bulk data sources, by curation from the literature, and by annotation based on assessment of contributing evidence; data capture is organized around consistent attribution to primary sources. As far as is possible, descriptive data are curated using controlled vocabularies (CV), including the Gene Ontology for molecular function, biological process and cellular component, the Sequence Ontology ontology for sequence features, and an extensive CV for anatomical terms and developmental stages.
