Database Description

Mitome is database for comparative analysis of mitochondrial genomes and arrangements within metazoan. A particular function of this database is the automatic reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships among metazoans selected by a user from a taxonomic tree based on nucleotide sequences, amino acid sequences or gene arrangement patterns. Mitome also enables users (i) to find the taxonomic positions of organisms of which complete mitochondrial genome sequences are publicly available; (ii) to acquire various metazoan mitochondrial genome characteristics through a genome browser; (iii) to search for homology patterns in mitochondrial gene arrangements; (iv) to download nucleotide or amino acid sequences not only of an entire mitochondrial genome but also of each component; (v) to find references within PubMed.
