PALS db: Putative Alternative Splicing database
PALS db is a collection of Putative Alternative Splicing information from 19 936 human UniGene clusters and 16 615 mouse UniGene clusters. Alternative splicing (AS) sites were predicted by using the longest messenger RNA (mRNA) sequence in each UniGene cluster as the reference sequence. This sequence was aligned with related sequences in UniGene and dbEST to reveal the AS. This information was presented with six features: (i) literature aliases were used to improve the result of a gene name search; (ii) the quality of a prediction can be easily judged from the color-coded similarity and the scaled length of an alignment; (iii) we have clustered those EST sequences that support the same AS site together to enhance the users' confidence on a prediction; (iv) the users can also set up the alignment criteria interactively to recover false negatives; (v) tissue distribution can be displayed by placing the mouse cursor over an alignment; (vi) gene features will be analyzed at foreign s...
