DRASTICx97INSIGHTS -- querying information in a plant gene expression database

What you can do:
Search for information of plant gene expression in response to pathogens and environmental changes.
Highlights:
  • DRASTIC--Database Resource for the Analysis of Signal Transduction In Cells) has been created as a first step towards a data-based approach for constructing signal transduction pathways.
  • DRASTIC is a relational database of plant expressed sequence tags and genes up- or down-regulated in response to various pathogens, chemical exposure or other treatments such as drought, salt and low temperature.
  • More than 17700 records have been obtained from 306 treatments affecting 73 plant species from 512 peer-reviewed publications with most emphasis being placed on data from Arabidopsis thaliana.
  • The INSIGHTS (INference of cell SIGnaling HypoTheseS) suite of web-based tools allows intelligent data mining and extraction of information from the DRASTIC database.
  • Potential response pathways can be visualized and comparisons made between gene expression patterns in response to various treatments.
