Hi all,

I have just finished a new (acedb) database for our site called CropSeqDB.
One of the basic aims of this database has been to link sequences from UK
crop plant species to their likely homologues in Arabidopsis.

So using AceBrowser, I have hacked the standard Sequence report script so
that homology objects in one database (CropSeqDB) provide hyperlinks into
another database (our Arabidopsis database -AGR).

E.g. see:


This page shows a CropSeqDB entry for a Maize sequence, with links to

If this sort of AceBrowser script (CropSeq-sequence) would be of use to
anyone then just let me know and you can have a copy.  And for those of
you who haven't seen me post here before, then I would add that I have a
whole range of other AceBrowser tweaks which can be seen in action if you
go to:
