With this online system, it is now possible to search DNABooks online for needed sequences by name and by research subject, as well as browse a variety of information and pictures from the publications.
  The database went live on June 3, 2005 at http://gerg03.gsc.riken.jp/DNABook_DB. Any researcher will now be able to determine online whether a specific clone is available through the DNABook series.
  The first book in the series, the RIKEN Mouse Genome Encyclopedia DNABook, is now on sale through the RIKEN venture company Dnaform. The DNA Book Team is now working on the development of technologies and undertaking market research to get feedback from potential users.
