BovBase and BadBase
Andre Eggen and Frank Samson, of the Laboratoire de Genetique
Biochimique (INRA) kindly provided the following descriptions of
BovBase and BadBase.
BovBase is an ACeDB version of the BOVMAP database. BOVMAP is a
public database, which contains information on mapped genes and
markers in cattle. The structure of data has been established in
order to offer to the scientific community involved in genetics of the
cattle species the easiest and largest access to the information on
loci, alleles, genetic or physical maps, polymorphisms and homologies
(comparative mapping). In addition, BOVMAP contains information on
probes, primers, contacts, and the bibliography. BOVMAP has been
implemented on a UNIX server at the INRA research center of
Jouy-en-Josas using the relational database managing system ORACLE and
a user interface is developed with C-Scape tool in C language. The
ACeDB-version (BovBase) is very useful in order to display genetic
maps, specialy with the multimap function.

BadBase is an adaptation of ACeDB we wrote for Bacillus subtilis
sequences and genetic map. BadBase is accessible through X interface
and our Web server. It's the ACeDB version of MadBase (Microbial
ADvanced data Base), designed on ORACLE, interfaced to a Web server,
and created for managing microbial sequences and genetic cards.
Bacterial sequences data are automatically loaded from Genbank. For
bacillus subtilis, we expect to use the sequences set built by Ivan
Moszer from Pasteur Institute and we generate ourselves and diffuse a
flat file for the genetic map.
