Provides a database of transposable elements (TE) identified in the complete genome of fish. FishTEDB combines de novo structure-based and homology-based approaches to find TE. This repository is based on the Fishbase resource and offers TE of several species of fish (bony, cartilageneous, lamprey and lancelet). It allows users to analyse sequences with three tools included in the database: BLAST, HMMER and GetORF.
