MachiBase | A Drosophila melanogaster 5'-end mRNA transcription database


Gives access to Drosophila melanogaster 5’-end mRNA tags at different developmental states. MachiBase is designed to assist fly biologists in their analyses of gene expression and in placing expression data in the context of functional genomics through genomic orientation. Users can access information on differentially expressed genes by either inputting the gene name as a keyword or selecting a chromosomal location. The database can assist biologists in explaining transcriptional initiation mechanisms by combining additional information on chromatin structure and DNA methylation.
