GermOnline -- A Cross-species Community Knowledgebase on Germ Cell Differentiation

What you can do:
Search for information and microarray expression data for genes involved in mitosis and meiosis, gamete formation and germ line development across species.
  • Release 2.0 (2004) provides exclusive access to microarray expression data from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Rattus norvegicus, as well as curated information on 700 genes from various organisms.
  • Information is contributed through an online form using free text, images and the controlled vocabulary developed by the GeneOntology Consortium.
  • 2007 update:
  • a novel release of the GermOnline knowledgebase covering genes relevant for the cell cycle, gametogenesis and fertility.
  • annotation system (MIMAS) used to extensively describe experimental data obtained with high-density oligonucleotide microarrays (GeneChips) and a comprehensive system for online editing of database entries (MediaWiki).
  • The RNA data include results from classical microarrays as well as tiling arrays that yield information on RNA expression levels, transcript start sites and lengths as well as exon composition.
