The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) model organism ENCyclopedia Of DNA Elements (modENCODE) Project will try to identify all of the sequence-based functional elements in the Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster genomes.

The project is run as a Research Network and data is publicly available, with some restrictions on its use for 9 months following publication. This site is maintained by the modENCODE Data Coordination Center.
