Database Description

Xenbase (www.xenbase.org) is a model organism database integrating a diverse array of biological and genomic data on the frogs, Xenopus laevis and Xenopus (Silurana) tropicalis. Data is collected from high-throughput screens, other databases, community submissions and scientific literature and integrated into a number of database modules covering subjects such as genes, gene expression, genomic analysis, literature and community. Searchable interfaces are provided for finding genes, publications, people, labs, organizations, Xenopus lines, and for browsing the X. tropicalis genome.
