We describe a revised and expanded database on human intermediate filament proteins, a major component of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton. The family of 70 intermediate filament genes (including those encoding keratins, desmins, and lamins) is now known to be associated with a wide range of diverse diseases, at least 72 distinct human pathologies, including(More)
The advent of genotype data from large-scale efforts that catalog the genetic variants of different populations have given rise to new avenues for multifactorial disease association studies. Recent work shows that genotype data from the International HapMap Project have a high degree of transferability to the wider population. This implies that the design(More)
UNLABELLED Alternative splicing of mRNA allows many gene products with different functions to be produced from a single coding sequence. Exon skipping is the most commonly known alternative splicing mechanism. A comprehensive database of alternative splicing by exon skipping is made available for the human genome data. 1,229 human genes are identified to(More)
There is a need for country/population-specific databases because the existence of population-specific mutations for single gene disorders is well documented, and there is also good evidence for ethnic differences in the frequencies of genetic variations involved in complex disorders. Thus the Singapore Human Mutation/Polymorphism Database (SHMPD) was(More)
CLUB ("Candidate List of yoUr Biomarkers") is a freely available, web-based resource designed to support Cancer biomarker research. It is targeted to provide a comprehensive list of candidate biomarkers for various cancers that have been reported by the research community. CLUB provides tools for comparison of marker candidates from different experimental(More)
The Gastric Cancer (Biomarkers) Knowledgebase (GCBKB) (http://biomarkers.bii.a-star.edu.sg/background/gastricCancerBiomarkersKb.php) is a curated and fully integrated knowledgebase that provides data relating to putative biomarkers that may be used in the diagnosis and prognosis of gastric cancer. It is freely available to all users. The data contained in(More)
