Microarray technology has become employed widely for biological researchers to identify genes associated with conditions such as diseases and drugs. To date, many methods have been developed to analyze data covering a large number of genes, but they focus only on statistical significance and cannot decipher the data with biological concepts.

FANTOM DB, the database of Functional Annotation of RIKEN Mouse cDNA Clones, is designed to store sequence information of RIKEN full-length enriched mouse cDNA clones, graphical views of sequence analysis results, curated functional annotation information and additional descriptions, including Gene Ontology terms. RIKEN's Mouse Gene Encyclopedia Project(More)
READ, the RIKEN Expression Array Database, is a database of expression profile data from the RIKEN mouse cDNA microarray. It stores the microarray experimental data and information, and provides Web interfaces for researchers to use to retrieve, analyze and display their data. The goals for READ are to serve as a storage site for microarray data from(More)
The naked mole-rat (NMR, Heterocephalus glaber), which is the longest-lived rodent species, exhibits extraordinary resistance to cancer. Here we report that NMR somatic cells exhibit a unique tumour-suppressor response to reprogramming induction. In this study, we generate NMR-induced pluripotent stem cells (NMR-iPSCs) and find that NMR-iPSCs do not exhibit(More)
Although the sequencing of the human genome and several model organisms is almost complete, the number of genes in the human is still in debate. cDNA (complementary DNA) is generated from mRNA that is transcribed from the genome and can be regarded as a gene itself; therefore, decoding cDNA sequences is important in characterizing genes.
