PlasmoDB is a genome database for the genu … PlasmoDB is a genome database for the genus Plasmodium, a set of single-celled eukaryotic pathogens that cause human and animal diseases, including malaria. It brings together data provided by numerous laboratories worldwide (see the Data Sources page), and adds its own data analysis.<br />
PlasmoDB is a functional genomic database for Plasmodium spp. that provides a resource for data analysis and visualization in a gene-by-gene or genome-wide scale. PlasmoDB belongs to a family of genomic resources that are housed under the EuPathDB Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) umbrella. PlasmoDB contains numerous data types from several broad categories--annotated genomes, evidence of transcription, proteomics evidence, protein function evidence, population biology and evolution. Data in PlasmoDB can be queried by selecting the data of interest from a query grid or drop down menus. Various results can then be combined with each other on the query history page. Search results can be downloaded with associated functional data and registered users can store their query history for future retrieval or analysis.
* Annotated genomes: Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium yoelii, Plasmodium berghei, Plasmodium chabaudi, Plasmodium knowlesi
* Unannotated genomes: Plasmodium reichenowi, Plasmodium gallinaceum
* Others: environmental isolate sequences from numerous species
