RNA Type: Ribozyme
Overview: Group I Intron Sequence and Structure Database (GISSD) is database of group I introns on bacteria, lower eukaryotes and plants. GISSD contains consensus structures for each group I subgroup based on high quality alignments. Each intronic structure and alignment stored in the database was manually curated based on previous predictions using the software INFERNAL (Nawrocki et al., 2009). It also stores taxonomy information from GenBank and 3-D structures for some introns.
Search Methods:
  • Keyword: search by intron name, host gene name, organism, phylogeny (kingdom, order, phylum, etc) or by accession number. The query can also be filtered according to intron subgroups, CDS, 3D structure, host gene or cell location (e.g. nucleus, chloroplast and mitochondrion).
  • TAG: search by intron group (e. g., IA, IB etc).

Information Content: Alignment, Catalysis, Cell location, Classification, Intron type, Phylogeny, Prediction tools, Sequence, Structure.
