Resource:Drosophila melanogaster Exon Database

Name: Resource:Drosophila melanogaster Exon Database
Description:

Drosophila melanogaster Exon Database (DEDB) is a database that contains information on Drosophila melanogaster exons presented in a splicing graph form. The data in this database is based on release 3.2 of the Drosophila melanogaster genome annotations available at FlyBase. The gene structure information extracted from the annotations were checked, clustered and transformed into splicing graph. The splicing graph form of the gene constructs were then used for classification of the various types of alternative splicing events.
Pfam domains were also mapped onto the protein sequences allowing users to access the impact of alternative splicing events on domain organization. DEDB's catalog of splicing graphs facilitates genome-wide classification of alternative splicing events for genome analysis. The splicing graph viewer brings together genome, transcript, protein and domain information to facilitate biologists in understanding the implications of alternative splicing.
Users can query the database using the query page using BLAST, FlyBase Gene Name, FlyBase Gene Symbol, Pfam Accession Number and Pfam Identifier. This allows users to determine the Drosophila melanogaster homology of their gene using a BLAST search and to visualize the alternative splicing variants if any. Users can also determine genes containing a particular domain using the Pfam Accession Numbers and Identifiers.

Sponsors: DEDB is supported by the National University of Singapore through the award of an Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Singapore (A-STAR) scholarship.
