YIDB -- The Yeast Intron DataBase

What you can do:
Search for information about all introns encoded in the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Highlights:
  • Introns are divided according to their mechanism of excision: group I and group II introns, pre-mRNA introns, tRNA introns and the HAC1 intron.
  • Information about the host genome, the type of RNA in which they are inserted and their primary structure are provided together with references.
  • For nuclear pre-mRNA introns, transcription frequencies, as determined by microarray experiments, have also been included.
Keywords:
  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae introns
  • yeast introns
  • introns
  • mitochondrial genome
  • mitochondrial introns
  • yeast genome
  • gene splicing
  • tRNA introns
  • group I introns
  • group II introns
