The Porcine Translational Research Database

The data in the Porcine Translational Research Database is supported by >5800 references, and contains 65 data fields for each entry, including >9700 full length (5′ and 3′) unambiguous pig sequences, >2400 real time PCR assays and reactivity information on >1700 antibodies. It also contains gene and/or protein expression data for >2200 genes and identifies and corrects errors (gene duplications artifacts, mis-assemblies, mis-annotations, and incorrect species assignments) for >2,000 porcine genes. This database is the largest manually curated database for any single veterinary species and is unique among porcine gene databases in regard to linking gene expression to gene function, identifying related gene pathways, and connecting data with other porcine gene database.

Dataset Info

These fields are compatible with DCAT, an RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogs published on the Web.

Equipment or Software Used
Intended Use
To provide a centralized, manually-curated source of genomic and proteomic information for swine in biomedical research.
Use Limitations
The database provides data for approximately 1/2 of the genome. Furthermore the database, as currently formatted, only provides the sequence for the longest RNA transcript or protein.
