The Neurospora crassa e-Compendium (originally the "gene list") was initiated by the Curator in 2000, initially aided by Masters' students in Bioinformatics at The University of Leeds. It continues the series of gene compilations including "Map Construction in Neurospora crassa" by Barratt, Newmeyer, Perkins and Garnjobst, Adv. Genet. (1954), "Chromosomal Loci of Neurospora crassa" by Perkins, Radford, Newmeyer and Bjorkman, Micro. Revs. (1982) and "The Neurospora Compendium" by Perkins, Radford and Sachs (2001) on line at the Fungal Genetics Stock Center (FGSC).
The e-Compendium has been continuously updated and expanded over the last twelve years and now contains over 3,000 gene entries including mitochondrial genes, transfer RNA and ribosomal RNA genes, physical mapping and sequence data from the Neurospora genome project at the Broad Institute, sequence links to PDB, and images of many morphological mutants. It is platform-independent, and includes a search function for the gene database, links from genes to sequences at the Neurospora genome project and elsewhere, to clone and strain catalogs at FGSC and to metabolic maps, and cross-links from "redundant" gene synonyms to the main gene entry; also links from cited references to reference details, Pubmed abstracts and full articles where available.
There is also a compilation of the physical maps of the chromosomes showing all sequenced genes with identified phenotype or product.
Note that the "Search the gene database" function is written in Perl and does not work for search strings including parentheses (curved brackets). However, strings including square or curly brackets are correctly processed.
