Database of ascidian embryonic development … Database of ascidian embryonic development at the level of the genome (cis-regulatory sequences, gene expression, protein annotation), of the cell (morphology, fate, induction, lineage) or of the whole embryo (anatomy, morphogenesis). Currently, four organism models are described in Aniseed: Ciona intestinalis, Ciona savignyi, Halocynthia roretzi and Phallusia mammillata.<br />
This version supports four sets of Ciona intestinalis transcript models: JGI v1.0, KyotoGrail 2005, KH and ENSEMBL, all functionally annotated, and grouped into Aniseedv3.0 gene models. Users can explore their expression profiles during normal or manipulated development, access validated cis-regulatory regions, get the molecular tools used to assay gene function, or all articles related to the function, or regulation of a given gene. Known transcriptional regulators and targets are listed for each gene, as are the gene regulatory networks acting in individual anatomical territories. <br />
ANISEED is a community tool, and the direct involvement of external contributors is important to optimize the quality of the submitted data.
