The Intronerator -- Exploring introns and alternative splicing in Caenorhabditis elegans

What you can do:
Explore the molecular biology and genomics of C. elegans with a special emphasis on alternative splicing.
Highlights:
  • It is a set of web-based tools for exploring RNA splicing and gene structure in Caenorhabditis elegans.
  • It includes a display of cDNA alignments with the genomic sequence, a catalog of alternatively spliced genes and a database of introns.
  • The cDNA alignments include >100 000 ESTs and almost 1000 full-length cDNAs. ESTs from embryos and mixed stage animals as well as full-length cDNAs can be compared in the alignment display with each other and with predicted genes.
  • The alt-splicing catalog includes 844 open reading frames for which there is evidence of alternative splicing of pre-mRNA.
  • The intron database includes 28 478 introns, and can be searched for patterns near the splice junctions.
