This process identified 3,100 candidate genes.
We identified porcine homologues to human genes of interest by searching online sources of porcine gene information.
Genbank (NR, EST, GSS, HTGS and Trace Archive databases) was searched by discontiguous Megablast using human Reference Sequence Accession numbers.
A similar search was conducted in the following databases using the human reference sequence, human Unigene number and/or HUGO gene symbols;
The DFCI (formerly TIGR) Gene Index
NIH Intramural Sequencing Center (NISC)
Pig EST Data Explorer
The database contains 1,410 real-time PCR assays (including 237 human cross reactive probes). Our database also contains comprehensive information regarding antibody availability.
