Primate Orthologous Exon Database

This database provides a catalog of unique, non-overlapping, orthologous exon regions in the genomes of human, chimpanzee, and rhesus macaque. The database can be used in analysis of multi-species RNA-seq data, allowing for comparisons of exon-level expression across primates, as well as comparative examination of alternative splicing and transcript isoforms.

SPIKE is a database of highly curated human signaling pathways with an associated interactive software tool. Users can view and download individual pathway maps and browse the entire database from this website, or install a stand-alone software tool that allows dynamic visualization and manipulation of the database and additional analyses.
