Collects human–mouse conserved elements associated to disease genes. DG-CST is an annotated collection of conserved sequences related to genes involved in genetic diseases. The database contains a large number of annotations and is designed to allow easy retrieval of conserved sequence tag (CST) information. It can be useful for investigators interested in studying the molecular mechanisms that underlie genetic diseases and may help in deciphering the spectrum of pathogenetic mutations that determine genetic diseases.
