Gene expression data are exponentially accumulating; thus, the functional annotation of such sequence data from metadata is urgently required. However, life scientists have difficulty utilizing the available data due to its sheer magnitude and complicated access. We have developed a web tool for browsing reference gene expression pattern of mammalian tissues and cell lines measured using different methods, which should facilitate the reuse of the precious data archived in several public… 
All of gene expression (AOE): an integrated index for public gene expression databases
TLDR
An index for gene expression data repositories, called All Of gene Expression (AOE), is constructed to integrate publicly available gene expressionData.org with the Sequence Read Archive (SRA).
MetaMap, an interactive webtool for the exploration of metatranscriptomic reads in human disease-related RNA-seq data
TLDR
An interactive frontend to facilitate the exploration of the MetaMap resource and provides a large variety of analyses and visualizations including dimension reduction, differential abundance analysis and Krona visualizations.
FANTOM enters 20th year: expansion of transcriptomic atlases and functional annotation of non-coding RNAs
TLDR
The sixth (latest) edition of the FANTOM project was launched to assess the function of human long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), and the updated FANTOM web resource is publicly available at https://fantom.riken.jp.
Multi-Omic Meta-Analysis of Transcriptomes and the Bibliome Uncovers Novel Hypoxia-Inducible Genes
TLDR
Several genes that were not known to be associated with hypoxia, including the G protein-coupled receptor 146 gene, are upregulated by hypoxic stimulation, and are reported on in this data-driven study.

TLDR
Several genes that were not known to be associated with hypoxia, including the G protein-coupled receptor 146 gene, are upregulated by hypoxic stimulation, and are reported on in this data-driven study.
Development of RIKEN Plant Metabolome MetaDatabase
TLDR
The RIKEN Plant Metabolome MetaDatabase is developed, which stores mass spectrometry-based metabolite profiling data of plants together with their detailed, structured experimental metadata, including sampling and experimental procedures, and implements intuitive and interactive operations for plant metabolome data.
NBDC RDF portal: a comprehensive repository for semantic data in life sciences
TLDR
An RDF-based life science dataset repository called the National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) RDF portal is developed, which includes 21 RDF datasets, comprising over 45.5 billion triples.
TMRS: an algorithm for computing the time to the most recent substitution event from a multiple alignment column
TLDR
Algorithms to estimate the evolutionary time to the most recent substitution event from a multiple alignment column by using a probabilistic model of sequence evolution will be useful for Evo-Devo studies, as they facilitate screening potential genomic sites that have played an important role in the acquisition of unique biological features by target species.
Placental Mammals Acquired Functional Sequences in NRK for Regulating the CK2–PTEN–AKT Pathway and Placental Cell Proliferation
TLDR
It is suggested that placental mammals acquired the phospholipid-binding CNH domain and CIR in NRK for regulating the CK2–PTEN–AKT pathway and placental cell proliferation.

Expression Atlas update—an integrated database of gene and protein expression in humans, animals and plants
TLDR
The first proteomics study in human tissues is now displayed alongside transcriptomics data in the same tissues, and novel analyses and visualisations include: ‘enrichment’ in each differential comparison of GO terms, Reactome, Plant Reactome pathways and InterPro domains.
Entrez Gene: gene-centered information at NCBI
TLDR
Entrez Gene is a step forward from NCBI's LocusLink, with both a major increase in taxonomic scope and improved access through the many tools associated with NCBI Entrez.
NCBI GEO: archive for functional genomics data sets—update
TLDR
The Gene Expression Omnibus is an international public repository for high-throughput microarray and next-generation sequence functional genomic data sets submitted by the research community and supports archiving of raw data, processed data and metadata which are indexed, cross-linked and searchable.
BioGPS: building your own mash-up of gene annotations and expression profiles
TLDR
This article focuses on the updates to BioGPS since the last paper, which updated the most popular plugin, the ‘Gene expression/activity chart’, to include ∼6000 datasets (from ∼2000 datasets) and enhanced user interactivity.
Bgee: Integrating and Comparing Heterogeneous Transcriptome Data Among Species
TLDR
Bgee, a database designed to compare expression patterns between animals, is developed by implementing ontologies describing anatomies and developmental stages of species, and then designing homology relationships between anatomical features and comparison criteria between developmental stages.
READ: RIKEN Expression Array Database
TLDR
The goals for READ are to serve as a storage site for microarray data from ongoing research in the RIKEN mouse encyclopedia project and to provide useful links and tools to decipher biologically important information.
BodyMap-Xs: anatomical breakdown of 17 million animal ESTs for cross-species comparison of gene expression
BodyMap-Xs () is a database for cross-species gene expression comparison. It was created by the anatomical breakdown of 17 million animal expressed sequence tag (EST) records in DDBJ using a sorting
Systematic expression profiling of the mouse transcriptome using RIKEN cDNA microarrays.
TLDR
The expression profile of 57,931 clones on 20 mouse tissues is determined using cDNA microarrays to identify 7206 separate clones that satisfied stringent criteria for tissue-specific expression and show evidence of expression for putative noncoding RNAs.
A promoter-level mammalian expression atlas
TLDR
It is found that few genes are truly ‘housekeeping’, whereas many mammalian promoters are composite entities composed of several closely separated TSSs, with independent cell-type-specific expression profiles.
ReCount: A multi-experiment resource of analysis-ready RNA-seq gene count datasets
TLDR
ReCount is an online resource of RNA-seq gene count tables and auxilliary data built from raw RNA sequencing data from 18 different published studies comprising 475 samples and over 8 billion reads, allowing statistical and computational scientists to consider alternative parameter values.
