NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The National Institutes of Health has extended its subscription to BioBase’sProteome and its Transfac databases, the company said today.
The Proteome databases collect and organize publicly available species-specific sequence information for 20 species. The HumanPSD volume contains information about functions, roles, localization and modifications of human, mouse, and rat proteins and expression patterns across cells, tissues, tumors, and consequences of gene mutations in mice.
The Transfac database covers eukaryotic gene regulation and contains annotated information related to nearly 9,000 transcription factors. It also holds information for 18,000 transcription factor binding sites derived from nucleotide distribution matrices and 12,000 binding fragments from ChIP-on-chip experiments.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
