Overview:
Transpogene is a database that focusses on how the transcriptome of 7 species are influenced by transposed elements (TEs).

It consists of a collection of TEs, which are located in the protein-coding genes of these organisms.

The genomes represented are human, mouse, chicken, Zebrafish, fruit fly, nematode and sea squirt, evidently stretching widely across the animal kingdom.

Examples of effects these TEs may have on their hosting genes include the creation of new exons, insertion of TEs into introns, exons, and promoters and involvement in the cause and development of diseases.

A search option is available where a keyword e.g. the Swissprot entry name or a number of other identifying codes can be entered and various criteria can be selected to narrow down the search results.

The Transpogene database is also downloadable in its entirety.
