Provides sequence of euchromatic genome of Drosophila melanogaster in high quality. BDGP is a resource developed to (i) produce gene disruptions using P element-mediated mutagenesis on a scale unprecedented in metazoans, (ii) characterize sequence and expression of cDNAs and (iii) develop informatics tools that support the experimental process, identify features of DNA sequence, and allow to present up-to-date information about annotated sequence to the research community.
