RECODE -- The database of the translational recoding events

What you can do:
Search for translational recoding events (programmed ribosomal frameshifting, codon redefinition and translational bypass).
Highlights:
  • RECODE is a database of the utilization of ribosomal frameshifting, translational bypassing and mRNA specific codon redefinition for gene expression.
  • The database provides information about the genes utilizing these events for their expression, recoding sites, stimulatory sequences and other relevant information.
  • It provides access to detailed information on genes known to utilize translational recoding and allows complex search queries, browsing of recoding data and enhanced visualization of annotated sequence elements.
  • Recode-2 is an improved and updated version of the database.
  • It provides access to detailed information on genes known to utilize translational recoding and allows complex search queries, browsing of recoding data and enhanced visualization of annotated sequence elements.
  • It stores information on approximately 1500 genes that are known to utilize recoding in their expression--a factor of approximately three increase over the previous version of the database.
