We are developing a new database named BRITE (Biomolecular Reaction pathways for Information Transfer and Expression), which contains knowledge of interacting molecules and/or genes. Since construction of BRITE requires cooperation with specialists in the respective fields of molecular biology, we have developed a BRITE construction tool named "BriteExPress" that can be utilized easily by WWW. Here, we report an overview of this tool and actual database construction for cell cycle controls.
