Overview: Condor is a database of Conserved Non-coding Elements (CNE) extracted from multiple alignments of orthologous genomic regions of fugu and mammalian genomes. There are two types of information stored in the database: conservation information in vertebrates, obtained from the alignments, and information related to experimentally validated CNEs acting as putative promoter enhancers in different samples/tissues of zebrafish embryos.
Search Methods:
  • Similarity: search sequences against the Condor CNEs or genomic assemblies used in multiple alignment. The BLAST program is used in both searches.
  • Keyword: search by CNE accession code, gene name, SPTR accession, Ensembl accession, GO accession etc.
  • TAG: search by gene name or CNEs in gene expression data in several tissues (i.e., brain, eye, muscle, blood, etc.) and stages (i.e., 24-30 hfp). The user can specify the minimum percentage of in at least N% of expressing embryos.
