Database Description

Full-length pig cDNA libraries and ESTs

Recent Developments

The stored porcine ESTs are more than 160 000. We fully sequenced the inserts of 10 147 of the cDNA clones that had undergone EST analysis; the sequences and annotation of the cDNA clones and ESTs are stored in the database.


This database is constructed and maintained with support by the Animal Genome Research Project and the Food Traceability Research Project of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan and by a Grant-in-Aid from the Japan Racing Association.
