Abstract Knowledge of farm animal genomes has increased enormously over the last decade. A large part if this information is publicly available for a variety of species and through specific databases such as for pigs; PiGBASE for mapping data, Pig EST Database, TIGR SsGI for genes and data on their expression patterns and the INRA Comparative and Cytogenetic mapping home pages. Potentially these databases provide comprehensive public repositories for genome research. However, these data are difficult to combine from the different sources or with private data, but also with genome data of model organisms. This strongly hinders comparative mapping and positional fine-mapping. A new pig genome database - PACE was set up in the Netherlands to enable integration of data from the different sources. For this, the widespread database system of AceDB has been adapted and links with existing farm animal databases but also databases like LocusLink, Genbank, MGI, GeneCards are included to facilitate an efficient comparative mapping with human and mouse. In addition published information on porcine QTL has been included. This database with more than 5000 genetic markers and loci
