The site is up-to-date, and each page has a link back to the homepage.The site appears to be updated as required. At the time of reporting the latest press release was dated May 2001.This site is an information mine for imprinting-related researchers. It has a wide range of useful features, such as video files of imprinting conferences, an up-to-date publication list with links to the full papers as PDF files, a good search facility and an excellent list of links. It would be improved if the human imprinted-gene database was extended to provide a full chromosome map with details of a particular imprinted gene's location. Most of the text and figures can be printed. For printing scientific papers in PDF format you need Acrobat Reader although no link to download it is provided. The imprinting conference videos are in QuickTime format. Some of the links were not working and the interactive online discussion group on gene imprinting is no longer functional.It would be useful to have a list of links to all imprinting research groups around the world. A good website map would be helpful for new users.Relatively few websites are available for this interdisciplinary subject. More information on genetic and physical imprinting map of the mouse can be found at Imprinting and imprinted genes reviews, and an excellent Catalog of imprinted genes and parent-of-origin effects in humans and animals is hosted by the Cancer Genetics Laboratory at the University of Otago, New Zealand.Geneimprint.comImprinting and imprinted genes reviewsCatalog of imprinted genes and parent-of-origin effects in humans and animals
