An open-access database of quantitative mRNA and protein profiles specifically for immune cells and tissues. The database currently contains: (i) quantitative mRNA profiles for human and mouse immune cells/tissues obtained using Affymetrix GeneChip technology; (ii) quantitative protein profiles for mouse immune cells obtained using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) followed by image analysis and mass spectrometry and (iii) various visualization tools to cross-reference the mRNA and protein profiles of immune cells.
Aims to facilitate studies of the immune system. IKB is a resource that provides information about genes and proteins involved in immunological processes, their evolutionary history, orthologous genes and genetic variations at many levels including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), disease-causing mutations, alternatively spliced variants and copy number variations. The data provided can be used for large scale studies targeting immune systems.
A well-organized and professionally curated repository for cancer immunology. To reflect the complexity of the knowledge about cancer antigens, the database will be organized in multiple tables, which will be linked to each other using common keys (a standard relational database structure). A central role will be played by a table describing the genes that encode the antigens.
