The ASAP II database -- analysis and comparative genomics of alternative splicing in 15 animal species

What you can do:
Search and compare alternative splicing events in 15 animal species.
Highlights:
  • ASAP II provides a new web interface enabling more detailed exploration of the data, and integrating comparative genomics information with alternative splicing data.
  • This is an expanded version of the Alternative Splicing Annotation Project (ASAP) database: (i) its human alternative splicing data are expanded approximately 3-fold over the previous ASAP database, to nearly 90,000 distinct alternative splicing events; (ii) it now provides genome-wide alternative splicing analyses for 15 vertebrate, insect and other animal species; (iii) it provides comprehensive comparative genomics information for comparing alternative splicing and splice site conservation across 17 aligned genomes, based on UCSC multigenome alignments; (iv) it provides an approximately 2- to 3-fold expansion in detection of tissue-specific alternative splicing events, and of cancer versus normal specific alternative splicing events.
  • It also contains a novel database linking orthologous exons and orthologous introns between genomes, based on multigenome alignment of 17 animal species.
