How to cite our suite of online tools and databases

Featured online tool publication


Our software tools and databases can help you

  • identify orthologs among yeasts, worm, fly, and vertebrates (e.g. DIOPT)
  • identify genes in specific functional groups (GLAD)
  • identify reagents for functional genomics (e.g. UP-TORR)
  • analyze, integrate, and visualize data (e.g. COMPLEATSignedPPI)
  • get support for applications such as qPCR or HRMA
