Contains genomic information relating to each pseudogene in a consistent manner. psiDR provides a variety of activity information for all the surveyed pseudogenes. It can supply potential targets for further experimental follow-up. It allows users to classify pseudogenes with various attributes, and permits identifying expressed pseudogenes. This database is useful to better understand the regulatory role of pseudogenes, especially in cancer and other developmental processes.
