Xpro -- A database of eukaryotic protein-encoding genes

What you can do:
Search all the eukaryotic protein-encoding DNA sequences contained in GenBank and find annotations on the splice sites and intron phases.
Highlights:
  • Xpro is a relational database that contains all the eukaryotic protein-encoding DNA sequences contained in GenBank with associated data required for the analysis of eukaryotic gene architecture.
  • Xpro also provides annotations on the splice sites and intron phases and validates intron positions using alignment information between the recordx92s sequence and EST sequences found in dbEST.
  • A non-redundant set of Xpro database contents is also obtained by cross-referencing to the Swiss-Prot/TrEMBL and Pfam databases.
  • The database currently contains information for 493 983 genesx97351 918 intron- containing genes and 142 065 intron-less genes (as of 2004)
Keywords:
  • introns
  • eukaryotic introns
