University of California-San Diego bioengineers have created the first online search engine for web-based functional genomics data, enabling researchers to comb through massive amounts of data held in Internet repositories that might someday lead to medical breakthroughs.

Called GeNemo, the new search system is designed to help uncover functions in specific parts of genomes that are associated with normal physiology as well as diseases of certain organs and tissues. By searching functional genomics data, which record the diverse activities of every piece of an organism's genome, researchers can identify patterns directly relevant to health and illness.
