News/New InterMine and MOD funding
An NHGRI grant that funded a collaboration between InterMine and three of the major Model Organism Databases (MODs) has been renewed and expanded.
The new InterMOD funding is for three years and now includes MGI (mouse) and WormBase (worm) who will each set up and host an InterMine instance. These will work alongside the existing InterMine developments at SGD (yeast), RGD (rat) and ZFIN (zebrafish).
A major aim of the new project is to provide stronger links and cross organism querying between the MODs involved and to make query APIs available to bioinformaticians.
