Alternate Transcript Diversity Database

What you can do:
Derive Transcript Patterns from AltSplice Splice Patterns and search for information on polyA sites.
Highlights:
  • there are two components in the ATD database - AltTrans and AltPas.
  • AltTrans pipeline can be used to derive Transcript Patterns from AltSplice Splice Patterns - a Transcript Pattern is one which is annotated for both splicing and the terminating polyA site.
  • AltPas, which contains data on polyA sites, is derived independent of the observed splice patterns.
  • ATD basically reports alternate transcript patterns (that are annotated for splicing and terminating polyA site) as delineated by AltTrans pipeline; polyA sites as identified in AltPas for every gene are also included in the ATD database.
