Databases

The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP) – New database provides vast trove of genetic information on tiny single-celled organisms in the ocean

rna-seq

The ocean holds a bewildering array of microscopic life. Many of the smaller organisms are difficult to study or even to identify under a microscope. For this reason, scientists often look at the genes of these microbes to figure out ...

HSDB – Thoroughbred Horse Single Nucleotide Polymorphism and Expression Database

Genetics is important for breeding and selection of horses but there is a lack of well-established horse-related browsers or databases. In order to better understand horses, more variants and other integrated information are needed. Researchers at Hankyong National University, Korea ...

Brain RNA-Seq – An RNA-Sequencing Transcriptome and Splicing Database

rna-seq

The major cell classes of the brain differ in their developmental processes, metabolism, signaling, and function. To better understand the functions and interactions of the cell types that comprise these classes, a team led by researchers at the Stanford University ...

APADB: a database for alternative polyadenylation and microRNA regulation events

Alternative polyadenylation (APA) is a widespread mechanism that contributes to the sophisticated dynamics of gene regulation. Approximately 50% of all protein-coding human genes harbor multiple polyadenylation (PA) sites; their selective and combinatorial use gives rise to transcript variants with differing ...
