PLACE (http://www.dna.affrc.go.jp/htdocs/PLACE/) is a database of nucleotide sequence motifs found in plant cis-acting regulatory DNA elements. Motifs were extracted from previously published reports on genes in vascular plants. In addition to the motifs originally reported, their variations in other genes or in other plant species in later reports are also(More)
PLACE (http://www.dna.affrc.go.jp/htdocs/PLACE/) is a database of motifs found in plant cis -acting regulatory DNA elements, all from previously published reports. It covers vascular plants only. In addition to the motifs originally reported, their variations in other genes or in other plant species reported later are also compiled. The PLACE database also(More)
To assist genetic research into Cryptomeria japonica, which is one of the most important forest tree species in Japan, expressed sequence tag (EST) analysis was carried out. The cDNA clones were isolated from a library derived from inner bark tissues. Partial sequences were obtained from 2231 clones, representing 1398 unique transcripts. Putative functions(More)
In parallel with the recent progress in life sciences, vast numbers of words for new substances and phenomena have been appearing. Since 1993, we have been analyzing English texts of medical journals selected mainly from the public MEDLINE database and collecting frequently-used terms together with their frequencies, concordances, typical usages,(More)
Timely worldwide distribution of biosequence and bioinformatics data depends on high performance networking and advances in Internet transport methods. The Bio-Mirror project focuses on providing up-to-date distribution of this rapidly growing and changing data. It offers FTP, Web and Rsync access to many high-volume databanks from several sites around the(More)
BACKGROUND Viral vectors are required as gene-delivery systems for gene therapy and basic research. Recombinant adenoviruses (rAds) expressing genes of interest are being developed as research tools and many studies in vitro and in vivo have already been performed with such rAds. METHODS Shuttle vectors for rAds were constructed with full-length cDNAs and(More)
Recently, we newly developed a relrrtionrrl schema for eflectively building, integruting. and searching the DNA database on the relational datuhnse mcrnngement system, SYBASE, at DDBJ. The schema is nclmed the “DDBJschema”. The schema uliowed us to implement N DNA database mtmqement system with two types of window inteeaces, YAMATO und ASUKA, to easily(More)
As a result of progressing large-scale sequencing, a huge number of genes have been newly identi ed. Therefore, it became more important to predict function of these genes from its sequence. Generally, for this end, homology search by computational tools such as BLAST [1] and FASTA [2] is used as the most e ective method. However, if no homologous sequences(More)
